A loan of $800 helped to buy ingredients for making her sandwiches.


Heriberta's story

Heriberta R. F. is 52 years old. She is a very hard-working person who looks out for the well-being of her 8 year-old granddaughter who is her biggest incentive to keep working. She lives with her granddaughter in the city of Nueva San Salvador, in La Libertad department. Heriberta works as a street trader, making and selling 'tortas mejicanas' (a type of sandwich).

Generally Heriberta makes her sales outside factories or in parks where she considers there to be a large number of people. Heriberta has a great desire to improve her business. She is requesting a loan so that she can buy more ingredients such as bread, dressings, avocados, ham, meat, etc. which will allow her to make more sandwiches. She has placed a lot of hope in improving her business with this loan and she hopes to use it to get ahead.
