A loan of $600 helped to buy corn, meat, and cheese for pupusas.

Lorena Esmeralda's story

Lorena, 36, is single. She has made a living selling "pupusas" [stuffed tortillas] on buses for eight years. It was her husband who taught her this business. She gets up very early to get ready. This way Lorena has been able to give her two children, who are adults, the necessities. She buys the materials she needs, such as corn, by the quintal.

The loan she's requesting from Fundación Campo is to buy four sacks of corn, meat, and soft cheese to make the pupusas.

This will help her increase her sales and, of course, her income to financially support her family. She wants to have more vendors to cover the bus routes.
