Yolanda Del Carmen
Yolanda lives with her family, which is composed of her husband and child. Her husband receives a pension, and she does not have any relatives abroad.

Her business is selling pupusas (stuffed corn tortillas), atoles (a hot drink made with corn meal), and antojitos (snacks) such as yucca, empanadas, tostadas, and similar items. She has been doing this for 15 years. She began by selling atoles, and later she added antojitos and pupusas. Because of her experience, she does not have any problems keeping her business running.

She will invest the loan in the repair and refurbishment of a mobile grill cart that she will use to make panes con pollo (cooked chicken sandwiches), hot dogs, and hamburgers. This is a new approach that she will implement in order to have extra income, and fulfill her commitments with no problems.

Her aspirations are to expand and consolidate her business, so that it will be self-sufficient and work without loans.
