El Salvador / General Store

A loan of $500 helped to buy oil, staple grains, beverages, meat, detergent, soap, and so forth.


Maria Emilia's story

María is married, and she lives together with her husband, three children, and two grandchildren. Her aunt and uncle taught her how to cook. Presently, her business has improved, and she now has had her store, where she sells essential products, for two years. She works every day from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

She will use this loan to buy oil, staple grains, beverages, meat, detergent, soap, and so forth to further stock her store as well as the necessary ingredients to make her food. With this, she hopes to increase her sales and use the earnings to pay off her debts.

She dreams of increasing her food sales and having a further stocked store in order to promptly meet her family commitments.
