A loan of $1,000 helped to buy corn and beans to make pupusas.


Maria Yanira's story

Maria is a very cheerful lady and is full of desire to get ahead. Her family is made up of her husband, who works buying and selling scrap metal, and her two children who are minors. Maria works every day making pupusas [stuffed corn cakes], increasing her clientele on the weekends which is when people consume more of this type of food. She is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL to be able to buy corn, beans, cheese, pork rinds and other products to make more pupusas and, thus, increase her sales, which is essential for her.
