Patricia Marilú's story

Patricia Marilú G. lives in the city of Arce, along with her husband and children. She has a business in front of the Geriel Institute where she sells pupusas, a typical Salvadorean food made with corn meal, cheese, beans, and fried pork. She also sells beverages and snacks. She has a reputation for being extremely clean and neat, and stands out for being very hard-working. Patricia requests a loan through which she could better supply her business. Even though her sales are stable up to a certain point, her income is not always enough to cover her personal expenses. This is the reason why Patricia’s greatest wish is to be able to increase her income, so she can contribute to the household expenses with her husband. Her goal is to provide a better standard of living for her children.
