Blanca Nieve
The Honduras 2000 cooperative bank meets every 15 days in the canton of Jaramijo (Manta). The area is known for the beautiful beaches that bathe the coasts of this beautiful place. Here, the majority of the residents are very hard working and dedicated to work related to the sea.

In this place we meet Blanca, who is 50 years old and married. She had seven children from this relationship, however two have passed away. Three are grown, and she has two girls aged 16 and 13, who are students. All her children still live in her house. Her husband is a fisherman.

She dedicates herself to selling clothing and all types of school supplies. She sells door-to-door, and also from her house where her customers visit. They place many orders, and she must have them ready when they return from their various jobs on the ocean. She works four days per week, delivering on credit and collecting payment every fifteen days. She buys her merchandise in Manta or Guayaquil each time she needs it. She has been in business for five years, and things are going very well.

This loan is to buy pants, shirts, t-shirts, blouses and undergarments. She has been with the cooperative bank for more than 11 years. She likes it because, thanks to one of the loans, she was able to start her business.

Her dream is to have a commercial location.
