Mirian Del Carmen's story

Miriam lives in Guatajiagua, in Morazán department with her husband and six children: 18 year-old Ever, 12 year-old Kevin, 10 year-old Jimmy, 7 year-old Franklin, 4 year-old Marvín and 2 year-old Liliana. Miriam makes and sells 'comales' (flat earthenware pans for cooking tortillas) and earthenware pots. Miriam is 36 years old. She learned her traD. more than 20 years ago when her mother was in the business. Today it is her main source of income and she works from 8.00am to 5.00pm. Miriam would like to buy clay, firewood and nacazcol (a dye) so that she can make 'comales' and pans to sell. She is requesting this loan so that she can buy her material and prepare her products for sale. With this loan she will increase her business activity, creating more products to offer to her customers so that she can make more sales and make more income for her family since her family is large and she needs to see a way to make her income increase little by little. Miriam's vision is to grow her business so that she can make more money with which to fix up her house bit by bit and thereby be able to live more comfortably with her family.
