Jenny Patricia's story

Jenny, who sells pupusas [a traditional meal made with thick tortillas], lives with her husband. They have two children who are 6 and 8 years old. She is responsible for the home. She has had the business for 4 years, which developed through her own initiative. She has acquired experience. She works every day from 4 pm to 7 pm.
She is asking for a loan to buy construction materials like cement, sand, wood, and to pay for labor in order to pave the floor of her home. This loan will help her to improve her home and to have a better way of life with her children.
Jenny's goal is to maintain her home, that her children feel her support, that they do not lack what is most necessary to survive, and that they can study.
