A loan of $300 helped to purchase beef, pork, cheese and beverages.

Maria Vicenta's story

Maria is a single mother who has been selling pupusas and drinks for three years. She begins selling at three in the afternoon and ends at seven in the evening. Her business has not presented her with any difficulties. She has applied for a loan to buy beef, pork, cheese, and beverages that will serve to further strengthen her business and generate higher profits with which she can pay her bills.
She dreams of having a bigger business, having more satisfied customers, and providing more stable financial support to her family.
