A loan of $325 helped to buy corn, oil, propane, cabbage, and cheese.


Andrea's story

Andrea works in a pupusería (a stand selling pupusas, a savory treat made from stuffed corn dough). She lives with her daughter and grandchildren and began the business through her own initiative. She worked from home and has the experience needed to help her make quality products.

She is requesting the loan to buy corn, oil, propane, cabbage, and cheese; which are the essential supplies she needs to sell her product and have what she needs to keep working.

Her goal is to stay in business with the capacity to supply her customers’ demand, which will help her to make greater profits.
