Delmy Idalia
Delmy works selling dried fish, sardines, and pupusas, a traditional dish of El Salvador. She is a homebody, she lives as a single mother together with her daughter and mother. She learned this business through her friends before starting her own business and experimenting with a variety of products. She has been running her business for 10 years. She sells a smaller variety of products these days, but she still sells her pupusas.

She is applying for a loan in order to purchase fish, sardines, and ingredients for making pupusas such as corn, condiments, and oil. This will help her improve her business as the busy season for purchasing dried fish, particularly Holy Week, is approaching. Delmy's greatest aspiration is to expand her business, be able to offer more products, and also acquire a means to transport her wares.
