Maria Margarita's story

María Margarita is 49 years old and lives with her son and grandchildren. She sells “pupusas” made with rice and corn. María has several years of experience in this business, which has given her the opportunity to generate more income. Her “pupusa” shop is located in what is considered to be a good place. She has many customers who prefer to do business with her because the “pupusas” she sells are delicious and served warm. In addition, she offers affordable prices and very quick service.

María is a woman who is dedicated to her work. She is willing to do everything she can to fulfill her dreams since her family is the most important part of her life. In recent weeks, the deteriorated condition of her home has made her family uncomfortable. Her house is in need of repairs that need to be completed as quickly as possible to make it more secure. María says that her greatest secret is that perseverance has allowed her to become successful. She needs to invest in her home, but she does not have sufficient capital. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from Apoyo Integral in order to buy cement, bricks, tiles, tools, and other materials.

María Margarita has good credit references and has been responsible in repaying her debts. She has faith that she can provide her family a better quality of life.
