A loan of $1,200 helped buy chickens and consumables to prepare Pupusas.


Veronica Del Carmen's story

Verónica, a 19 year-old young woman, has a chicken farm and also tends a Pupusa (traditional Salvadoran dish) restaurant; she lives with her husband, her first son who is 2 years old, and her mother-in-law; they all work and contribute to the household expenses. Her mother-in-law encouraged her and motivated her to setup the chicken farm and they work together but have no specific schedule. She is requesting a loan to expand the farm and the Pupusa restaurant; this investment will help her to increase her revenues; for the restaurant, she will buy consumables such as pork, chicken, and corn ; for the farm, she will buy more animals and feed; her only risk is for the chickens to get sick. Her vision for the future is to grow a healthy son under adequate living conditions, to continue working so she can improve her business, and to achieve stability with the farm and the restaurant.
