Isidra is very hardworking. She’s been selling bread, honey, candied fruit, candy and paving stones. Her sales point is alongside a highway. It’s a honey producing zone and the sale of rosquillas [ring-shaped cookies], candy and stone extraction is very typical here. People pass by the place and buy these products because they are less expensive. She also goes to the community of Tela where she has a large number of customers that buy Rosquillas, candied fruit and candy from her. The paving stones are used to build walls or decorative fences on dwellings. She buys them at one price and then sells them at another producing good profit for her.

This is her first loan and she requested it to invest in her business. She will buy Rosquillas, candied fruit, honey and candies. Her goal is to earn more income to help her family and provide schooling for her children.
