Herson Elisur's story

Herson Elisur Calderon is 34 years old and lives with his wife who is a homemaker. He owns a stand where he sells pupusas and tortillas, softdrinks, sweets, bread, cookies and other food products.

The business is located at a public transportation bus stop in the city of Santa Tecla, where he lives. Sales volume is very high in this area because of the many passers-by.

This is the reason he wants to invest more in the business and buy larger quantities of food products. This will allow him to increase sales and provide a better lifestyle for his wife.
