Ana Bety's story

Ana has a business that sells pupusa [a thick corn tortilla stuffed with cheese, fried pork rind, chicken, or refried beans].

She is 36 years old and married. She has fun with her children, who are 15 and 19 years old. They are studying. Ana, has had this business for 10 years. She learned this work from her mother. She does it Monday through Saturday.

The loan she hopes to acquire, will allow her to buy corn, rice flour, fuel, pork cracklings, cheese, and beans among other things. This investment will let her increase her supplies, increase pupusa production, and, with it, earn more income.

Her goal is to strengthen her business, and offer her family a higher quality of life.
