A loan helped to buy cheese, pork rind, loroco (vine with edible flowers), oil, chicken, paper, bags, etc.


Jaime Ovidio's story

Jaime is a fighter who has his own business selling pupusas (thick, stuffed corn tortillas), chicken sandwiches, and drinks. For the past two years he has also been an employee.

His mother taught him the pupusa business, and with his skillful management he was able to add chicken sandwiches to his menu. He organizes his activities very well in order to meet his responsibilities. He shares his home with his life partner and two children who attend school.

He will invest in buying cheese, pork rinds, loroco (vines with edible flowers), oil, chicken, paper, bags, etc. so he will have the materials he needs to meet the wholesale orders he receives from his clients. He thinks this will stabilize his sales and generate more income.

His dreams are to build his own house, strengthen his business with new products and to meet the needs of his family.
