Juana Evangelista's story

Juana continues to look for a way of getting on in life and keeping her business going. This is why she decided to ask for more capital to buy oil, salt, seasoning, flour, pork rind, fresh cheese, vegetables, drinks, sheeting, wire, nails and wood. This will give her everything she needs for making pupusas (traditional dish made of corn tortilla) and snacks, and for the approaching rainy season she plans to build a small place to make her customers much more comfortable.

Her family now has a more comfortable lifestyle. She has been able to keep her business going with the help of the loans.
