A loan of $500 helped to buy cheese, pork cracklings, oil and tables from the market.


Glenda Patricia's story

Glenda is employed and lives with her mother. She manages a pupuseria (a store selling stuffed tortillas) which sells tortillas stuffed with cheese, pork cracklings, scrambled eggs and drinks, sodas, chocolate and refreshments in the evenings from Tuesdays to Sundays. The loan will be used to purchase raw materials such as corn, cheese, pork cracklings as well as tables, oil and beverages. These purchases are necessary to maintain the business and buy the tables which will allow her accomodate more customers with the intention of making them feel more comfortable. Glenda's dream is that the business grow and she is able to increase their income so that they have enough to live a better life and that her mother always has everything she needs.
