Raquel De Jesus's story

Raquel is requesting a new loan because she needs to continue investing in her business selling pupusas [stuffed handmade corn tortillas]. This will help her to buy everything she needs for making pupusas, including the following: oil, tomatoes, cabbage, quesillo [a soft cheese], meat, chicharrones [seasoned, fried pork skin], and others.

The previous loan allowed her to increase her clientele. She invested the earnings in her basic household expenses. Her economic conditions have improved, and she added a new member to the family.
