A loan of $500 helped to buy corn and wood, oil, seasoning and cheese.

Marlene Del Carmen's story

Marlene is requesting a new loan to continue to improve the business, because it is through the borrowed funds that she is expecting to make a big purchase to obtain the supplies at a better price. For example, corn and wood can be obtained at an even better price when they are purchased at wholesale. She will also buy oil, seasonings and cheese to make pupusas (stuffed tortillas). With the previous loan she increased the business' production, and she has a considerable number of customers to service, all of which has allowed her to earn a higher profit. She is motivated because she has this support to grow and better herself together with her family.
