Claudia Patricia's story

Claudia, a young 25-year-old woman, is the single mother of a 3 month old daughter and lives with her parents and a brother in El Divisadero department of Morazan. Claudia is dedicated to the sale of tamales, tortillas, and pupusas (stuffed tortillas). Generally she sells tamales Fridays and on weekends. The remaining days, she sells tortillas and pupusas.

Claudia is soliciting a loan to buy the ingredients to prepare pupusas, tamales, corn and firewood. This investment will help her to have sufficient materials to augment production to offer her customers.

Claudia's proposal is to have a strong business, stable enough to help her to cover her necessities and those of her daughter and family.
