A loan of $500 helped to buy cheese, meat, oil, and tomatoes for her business making pupusas (stuffed tortillas).

Rosa Marleny's story

Rosa works making pupusas (stuffed tortillas). She lives with her husband and two children, who are dependent on her income. She started off as an employee at a pupusa business; once she had learned how to prepare them, she decided to start her own business. This was 12 years ago. Her schedule is from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.

She is requesting a loan to invest in cheese, meat, oil, and tomatoes, with the thought of keeping everything stocked in her business for making pupusas, and expanding through increased sales.

Rosa's intention is to work with loans to improve her business. She believes that her good payment history will allow her to continue with this service, and additionally to improve her family's living conditions.
