A loan of $1,000 helped to buy ingredients to make pupusas.


Miriam Margarita's story

Miriam Margarita A. C. lives in the municipality of Ilopango in the department of San Salvador with her husband and two children who attend school. Miriam is a very responsible woman and dedicated to her family. She has her own business making pupusas (a traditional Salvadoran dish) which is in great demand as it is the most famous dish in the country.

Miriam works seven days a week making the pupusas from a dough made of maize flour or rice which is stuffed with cheese or pork. Because of their delicious flavour, she has many customers so Miriam wishes to buy more ingredients with the loan money. This way she can make more pupusas and increase sales.
