Karla Griselda's story

Karla Griselda M. C. is 34 years old and lives in the Department of Santa Ana with her husband who is an employee in a private company and her two children who are 13 and 8 years old. Karla is a very enterprising woman who owns three businesses because she wishes to be able to contribute as much as possible to her household. She has a stall from which she sells “pupusas” (tortillas stuffed with cheese, beans, pork, chicken, etc.) and works there every evening making and selling pupusas. She also sells men's and women's perfume and clothing for both men and women. Karla is a very responsible mother who is fighting to provide a better life for her children. For this reason, she is requesting a loan which she will use to buy all the raw materials she needs for making pupusas such as: cheese, corn, beans and other ingredients. She also hopes to invest in the purchase of perfume and clothes to increase her profits.
