Yes, selfhelp, the app backed by the State here, named "Chivo", is a custodial one (I would think its servers are actually based in the US, its mother company being "Zapp Inc.", although I haven't seen information about their location).
I'd think that a small percentage of the Salvadorian population could begin using non custodial LN apps in the future, but it'll require many education efforts from our part (that we're structuring right now 🙂).
