A loan of $175 helped to buy a variety of clothing as well as rice flour, corn and condiments, among other products.


Cecilia Nohemy's story

Cecilia makes a living selling clothes, pupusas (a traditional dish in El Salvador consisting of a thick, handmade tortilla filled with cheese, beans or meat) and snacks. She lives in her own house with her husband. She has done this work for a year as a source of income in order to support her family and make some improvements to her house.

The loan that she needs will allow her to buy a variety of clothing as well as items for the making of pupusas like rice flour, corn and condiments, among other products. This will help her to work with more inventory and offer a better product to her customers.

Her dream is to obtain a profit and with it make improvements to her house in the future.
