Maria Marleny's story

María lives with her husband and two children. Both she and her husband work. María's business is selling pupusas on a weekend together with her mother. She works Saturdays and Sundays and has eight years experience. She is requesting a loan to invest in the materials she needs for making her pupusas such as 'chicharrón' (cooked pork), oil, 'quesillo' (soft cheese), corn, seasonings and other products which will help her to improve the capacity of her business. This loan will enable her to provide her customers with a better service.

María's goals are to grow in her business by using loans and to be a good client so that she can develop her business through this loan service.
