Mirna Yecenia
Mirna, age 30, is married and has three children. She lives in a community in the Santa Cruz de Yojoa municipality.

Her business activity that generates income for her family is a small grocery store. She sells basic needs products (rice, beans, wheat flour, corn flour, and eggs) and hygiene products. She started her business with her own resources, and she later had the opportunity to use several loans. This allowed her to maintain her business and support her family.

She thinks that the main difficulties she faces are the high prices of food products and the low number of sales during some times of the year.

She has currently requested a loan for 15,000 lempiras. She will use the loan to buy food products, hygiene products, and medicines. Her goals are to offer her customers a variety of products, to increase her business, and to save for her children’s future.
