A loan of $350 helped to buy pork, chicken, and cheese.

Glenda Yanira's story

Glenda lives in Concepción Batres, in the deparment of Usulután. She lives alone with two children; she is a single mother and they are 5 and 8 years old. She makes and sells pupusas [corn tortillas with a variety of fillings]. She is in this business thanks to a neighbor who showed her how to make them. She decided to start her own business so she would have money for the household expenses.

At the moment her difficulty is that the business can’t grow because she doesn’t have money to invest in it. So, she is requesting a loan to make changes to her business and buy ingredients for her pupusas. This loan will help her keep enough ingredients on hand like pork, chicken, and cheese, so that she can make whatever the customers request.

Her vision is to have a well-established business and to provide her children with everything they need to grow and be educated, so that they can have a better future.
