A loan helped to buy corn, firewood, fried pork skin, oil, cheese, pasta and soft drinks.

Ines's story

Inés lives with her husband and her three children. She earns her living selling tortillas and pupusas (tortillas stuffed with chicken, cheese, beans or fried pork rind) and running a small store where she sells household products. She learned the business from her family. She has been running this business for 12 years, since it helps her to provide for her household.

She is requesting a loan with which to buy corn, firewood, fried pork skin, oil, pasta, soft drinks, snack foods and detergents. This loan will help her to stock her entire business, so that she will have the raw materials for her tortillas and her pupusas, as well as some products for her store. That will allow her to improve her production and her earnings.

Inés' objective is to expand her store, to improve the site where she offers the household products and to offer additional products in order to attract more clients.
