Standard & Poor's downgrades El Salvador
Financial services firm Standard & Poor's cut El Salvador's investment grade to B+ with a stable outlook.
The decision was made due to El Salvador's accumulated issues with its public finances, as well as sluggish growth.
"The cut reflects a constant deterioration of the government's financial profile, due to consistently low growth figures and high fiscal gaps," the firm's report said.
