Marta Gladis's story

Marta, 38 years old, lives in San Isidro, departament of Morazán. She has a small cafe where she sells pupusas, drinks and food. She lives alone, since her daughters have their own homes. The business has existed for 6 years. She works there from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. She learned this business when she worked in a restaurant.

At present she is asking for a loan to buy beverages such as sodas, and Gatorade as well as corn, beans, pork cracklings and other products that are a necessary part of the business. This investment will help her serve her customers better.

Marta's plan is to be a good client, make her payments on time, expand the cafe and continue progressing in her business.
