A loan of $800 helped to purchase corn, beans, "quesillo", pork cracklings, etc.


Irma Yoland's story

Irma lives in her own home with her son. She has owned a *pupuseria and *tortillería business for several years. She works in the tortillería in the morning and in the pupuseria in the afternoon, Monday through Sunday. She has many customers because she is very friendly and hardworking. She manages to cover some household expenses with the profits she earns. Irma is requesting the loan so she can purchase everything she needs to prepare her meals such as corn, quesillos [tortillas with cream cheese filling], pork cracklings, tomatoes, beans, and other items. In this way, she will earn higher profits and continue giving her son what he needs without any limitations.

*pupuseria - shop selling stuffed tortillas
*tortillería – tortilla shop
