A loan of $600 helped to purchase corn, beans, pork, fresh cheese, bread, chicken, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc.


Irma Yolanda's story

Irma, 60 years old, lives in her own house with her husband and her son who is 18 years old. She makes a living selling "pupusas" (a traditional dish in El Salvador consisting of a thick, handmade tortilla filled with cheese, beans or meat) and bread with chicken. She has her business located in her place of residence. She has had her business for 18 years and it has generated good earnings for her.

Irma is requesting a loan to be able to buy all of the necessary ingredients for the preparation of her foods like corn, beans, pork, fresh cheese, bread, chicken, tomatoes, cucumber, etc. to be able to continue with her business and in this way be able to give her family better financial stability.
