Yeni Patricia's story

Yeni is 22 years old, married, and her husband is 28. She has one son and three siblings who are under her care. She works selling food and pupusas (traditional Salvadoran thick hand-made corn tortillas). She has been working in this field for three years and she works from Monday through Saturday. The loan will help her to purchase products for making her food such as oil, rice, beans, beef, chicken, creme cheese filling, and deep fried pork skin. This will help her increase her inventory and obtain better income. Her dream is to strengthen her business and to bring a better quality of life to her family.
