María has her own grocery business that she established two years ago. She sells everyday food products such as corn, beans, sugar, rice, salt, lard, eggs, bread, meat, donuts, and other items. María previously sold only basic grains, but now she sells different products. She has been able to keep her business stocked with the various loans she has received.
This current loan of 20,000 HNL is her fifth one. She will invest in more inventory for her business by purchasing everyday food products. María hopes that her business will grow more so that she can improve her quality of life and that of her family.
