Santos Carminda
Señora Santos Carminda R. is 35 years old, married and has three children ages 10, 12 and 14. She lives with her family in the Guanacaste neighborhood in San Esteban, Olancho. She is a very hard-working person. Six years ago she started her first business running a small restaurant, but for the past two years she has been selling groceries. She has a small store that she runs out of her house. Business hours are from 6:00 am until 9:00 pm. The main advantage of this business is that there are no other grocery stores in her neighborhood so all her neighbors shop at her store.

She is requesting a loan to buy more groceries in order to increase and diversify her stock. Her goal is to have a small market that will bring in a better income so that she can continue supporting her children's studies. She would like to see them go to college and to improve their quality of life.

La sra. Santos Carminda R. tiene 35 años de edad, es casada y tiene tres hijos de 10,12 y14 años, y junto a su familia reside en el Barrio Guanacaste en San Esteban, Olancho. Es una persona muy trabajadora, su primer negocio lo tuvo hace seis años y fue un comedor, pero desde hace dos años se dedica a la venta de abarrotería. Tiene una pequeña pulpería que funciona en su domicilio, con un horario de atención de 6:00 am 9:00 pm. Su principal ventaja es que no hay otra pulpería en el barrio y eso le permite que todos sus vecinos hagan sus compras en su pulpería. El préstamo lo necesita para comprar abarrotería para surtir su negocio de más y variados productos. Su meta es tener un mercadito y que este le permita obtener mayores ganancias para seguir apoyando a sus hijos con el estudio porque ella desea que sean profesionales universitarios y también que su calidad de vida mejore.
