Adriana  Melissa
Adriana, 26, is married and living in a peripheral neighborhood in San Pedro Sula, Cortes.

Her income generating economic activity is a small grocery store where she sells basic staple items (rice, beans, wheat and corn flour, eggs) and hygiene products. She started her business with her own resources which made it possible for her to earn her own income to support herself. She believes that the main difficulty she has to face is the high price of food items and the poor sales in some of the seasons of the year. She is a very enterprising woman who wants to give her first child (she’s pregnant) everything necessary in food and health when born. She works full-time in her business.

She asked for a 15,000 lempira loan to buy corn, beans, flour, vegetables, dairy products, cured meats; these products are in high demand in family homes. She hopes with this investment that her sales will increase offering her customers the necessary products. Her plan is to enlarge the grocery store and to sell other products that she doesn’t have now to retain a better clientele.
