A loan of $450 helped to buy sheets of metal for her roof.

Vilma's story

Vilma lives with her husband and her two children who are 26 and 21 years old. She has been selling pupusas for 7 years. Vilma works from Monday to Sunday and her children are dependent on her business as it enables her to buy what they need.

Vilma will invest her loan in buying sheets of metal for her house as the roof is in a bad state of repair. This will be a great help as it will improve her home and make it safer, ensuring she doesn't have to fear the winter.

Vilma's goal is to use her loans to grow and further improve her business and to help her children improve themselves.
