A loan of $500 helped to buy cheese, corn, and cooking oil to make 'pupusas,' local stuffed tortillas.


Marta Lidia's story

Marta is once again requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of cheese, corn and cooking oil to prepare 'pupusas' (a popular Salvadoran dish). She has decided to ask for another loan because she considers it necessary to make new investments periodically to maintain the business. These investments have placed Marta's business in better condition, augmenting her capacity to attend to customers, improving sales and giving her the desire to work diligently in this new period.
