Maria Victoria

El Salvador
El Salvador / Food Production/Sales

A loan of $400 helped to purchase paper, sauces, corn, oil, and gas fuel for the pupuseria.


Maria Victoria's story

María lives with her husband and her two children. For four years she has sold pupusas (tortillas filled with cheese and other fillings, a specialty of El Salvador). Up to this point it has been a stable business, supported by her husband and children.

She is asking for her second loan to improve her business and to invest in supplies for the pupseria: paper, sauces, corn, and oil. This purchase will help her improve her sales, producing more.

Her intention is to have financial support in order to be able to develop the business, to always keep her clients, and to be in harmony with her family.
