A loan of $600 helped to buy ingredients to make pupusas.


Rosa Marina's story

Rosa makes and sells different types of pupusa such as cheese, crackling, and bean and cheese. She lives with her family, made up of her husband and her two children. Her business is located in a pupusa market that's patronized by a lot of people and where competition is fierce. Rosa has a lot of customers there who eat her food every day, especially on the weekend, because of the delicious flavor of her pupusas.

She's requesting a loan to have the necessary capital to buy large quantities of corn, cheese, cracklings, beans, and other ingredients that are necessary to make the pupusas.

It's important for both Rosa and her family to increase her sales and give her husband the support he needs so that between them they can support their household and their children, who deserve the best.
