Ana Julia's story

For 16 years Ana has been making and selling “pupusas” (traditional Salvadoran dish – thick, hand-made corn tortillas). She works 4 days a week. Her business is located on a main street in her city. She has many clients due to her friendliness and hygienic approach to food preparation. She is able to pay some household expenses with her earnings from her job and with her husband’s help. She lives in her own house with her husband and their 3 children ages 19, 16, and 4.

Ana is requesting a loan to purchase materials needed such as: pork rinds, fresh cheese, beans, corn, tomatoes, cabbage, oil etc... to be able to continue preparing food which generates a good profit and thus be able to give her family a better life.
