A loan of $200 helped to buy raw materials to make pupusas.


Teresa De Jesus's story

Teresa, 61, is a very responsible, punctual lady. She lives with her husband who works. Teresa sells tortillas at home and also sells pupusas [filled, grilled corncakes] and hot and cold beverages. Wanting to increase sales for her home’s wellbeing and economy, she’s requesting a loan to buy all the raw materials at wholesale so that she can get them at lower prices thus insuring higher profits. Teresa is a person with very positive references because she always strives to get ahead.
