A loan of $500 helped to buy quesillo, ground pork, beans, corn, tables and chairs.


Juana's story

Juana is 59 years old. She lives in her own home together with her husband and five children. She has a business selling pupusas which she has been running for 10 years. She sells her pupusas from Tuesday to Sunday, in the mornings and evenings. She has a lot of customers as she sells her pupusas at a good price and is a very friendly and hard-working person. She uses the profits she makes to get her family ahead in life.

Juana would like to increase her business by purchasing tables and chairs. She doesn't make enough money to do this and so she is requesting a loan for this purpose. She will also buy ingredients for making pupusas such as corn, oil, quesillo, ground pork, beans, etc. This will make her better profits and she will be able to continue providing her family with everything they need.
