Maria Ester's story

Maria, 50 years old, lives in a rented house with her daughter who has a business selling ‘pupusas’ (stuffed tortillas). Maria makes a living selling soft drinks and shakes. Her business is located near her place of residence in a very busy area, which is very good for sales. In addition to her excellent care, she is a responsible, hardworking, and honest person who is respectful with her customers. In this way and with the help of her daughter, she has managed to cover some of her household expenses. Maria is requesting a loan to stock her business with soft drinks, water, etc., and also to repair her display cooler, and that way increase her income and improve her and her family’s quality of life.
