A loan of $250 helped to buy corn, chicharrón, soft cheese, oil, cabbage and seasonings.


Fatima Flor Maria's story

Fátima lives with her mother and a cousin. She is single. All of the members of her household work. Fátima runs a pupusa restaurant, a business she learned from an aunt. Her business is located in her home and this is where she serves the customers from her area, many of whom are friends. She is requesting a loan to buy corn, chicharrón (fried pork rinds), soft cheese, oil, cabbage and seasonings for her business as they are essential to making her pupusas. This loan will help her to cover the investment and have everything she needs to hand so that she can make her sales.

Fátima's goal is to have a good experience with this loan, to make a good investment, to expand her number of customers and to increase her profits so that she can help her family.
