A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase pork meat, fresh cheese, cooking oil, soft drinks, and juices.


Marina Isabel's story

Marina lives with her husband and their son. She sells tortillas and pupusas (a traditional Salvadoran dish made of thick corn dough stuffed with savory ingredients), and she also administers a store business. She has been in business for 6 years and the high sellers are pupusas, tortillas, and drinks. She started out this business many years ago and it was her mother who taught how. She requests a loan to purchase corn in wholesale and to purchase products such as pork meat, fresh cheese, cooking oil, soft drinks, and juices. With this purchase she will have enough products to make tortillas, pupusas, and she will also have enough drinks to better serve her clients. Her objective is to strengthen her business and to have all that is necessary to meet her clients' demand. She also wants to generate more income for her family.
