A loan of $1,100 helped to purchase oil, rice, salt, crackling, "quesillo" (soft cheese), snacks, juices, soft drinks, seasonings, propane gas and other items.


Ana Maria Dolores's story

Ana, in addition to the sale of pupusas, has set up a store where she offers staple products. In this way she offers a better service to her customers, so that she requires more working capital in order to purchase oil, rice, salt, crackling, "quesillo" (a type of soft cheese), snacks, juices, soft drinks, seasonings and propane gas among other materials in order to strengthen her business. For Ana, the previous financing that she was provided through Kiva has permitted her to have the raw materials in order to support herself working and to improve her economic standing. Her family is doing very well.
