Karla Nohemy's story

Karla is a 21-year-old young woman who lives with her parents and brothers in Lolotique, part of the department of San Miguel. She is single and manages a snack shop in the Lolotique school center where she sells soda, bread, and pupusas (a traditional Salvadoran dish) to the students from Monday to Friday.


She needs a loan for the purchase of merchandise since the school year begins soon. For this reason, she must stock her snack shop with all of the items that she sells daily to the young students. She will purchase breads, chicken, sodas, snacks, fruits, sweets, and corn, among many other items.


With this loan, she hopes to begin a new year full of blessings for her business to be prosperous and, through her earnings, for her to be able to improve her family’s living conditions, help her mother, and also to be able to succeed and achieve her dreams and aspirations during her life.
