A loan of $1,200 helped to buy a grill for making pupusas (grilled stuffed corn cakes), and to finish a room for setting up her store in.

Glendy Yamileth's story

Glendy is 21, lives with her partner, and is the mother of a daughter. She has been selling basic household products for six years. She learned this business from a cousin who is like a sister to her and is the one who motivated her. Glendy saw that she sold quite a bit, and that is why she set up her own store.

To go to buy her products, she travels to the city in her mother-in-law's pick-up. She leaves at 4:00am and returns at 11:00am.

She is applying to Fundación Campo for a loan to buy a grill for making pupusas (grilled stuffed corn cakes) and to finish a room, in order to set up her store there, as she has been renting all this time. With the purchase of the grill, she will have a new source of income and increase her sales; earning more profits, improving her quality of life, and providing a better future for her daughter.

Glendy will have financial stability that will allow her to provide a better future for her daughter, and she will feel very satisfied as a mother, able to give her daughter everything she needs. With God's help, she wishes to save for buying her own vehicle. This way she will be able to get around by herself. She will stock the store more and will have better earnings.
