A loan of $650 helped to buy corn, soda, cracklings, and beans.


Jose Rogelio's story

José is married and has two children, ages 14 and 18. He runs a " pupusa" [stuffed tortillas] business, which he started because he needed money for the household. His sales schedule is from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. Currently José needs to strengthen his business, so he's requesting a loan to buy corn, soda, cracklings, and beans, as well as furniture such as some tables to serve the customers. This support will help him improve his inventory, sales, and income. His goals for the future are to have a more profitable business, make improvements on his house, and buy himself a vehicle to get around with his family.
