María Adela's story

María Adela M. D. M., 49, lives with her life companion and daughter in her own house in San Salvador Department. She sells pupusas (typical Salvadoran fast food) in the “La Tiendona” wholesale market; this helps her meet household expenses.

Maria has a lot of customers because she’s always at the disposal of people who visit her at her business for breakfast, which is when she sells the most pupusas, and for lunch during the afternoon when she prepares delicious soups, fried chicken and grilled meat, among other dishes. She tends to customers with the most kindness; she wants to see her business grow and be preferred by people.

This is why she’s asked INTEGRAL for a loan to buy raw materials like: corn, chicharrón (fried pork skin), cheese, beans, vegetables and oil to meet demand that grows daily in her business thanks to the good flavor of her dishes.

Maria, like all good, family oriented women, wants her family’s wellbeing and hopes to proviD. them with a better life this way.
