Mayra, 37, lives in the San Manuel sector, Cortes with her husband and three children. She’s very hardworking. She used to work in an assembly plant but when she became unemployed she decided to start her own business. She’s been selling a variety of merchandise like clothes, crafts, costume jewelry (earrings, bracelets, rings and necklaces) and now she also wants to start to sell chicken meat at home.

She has requested a 10,000 Lempira loan to stock up on merchandise. She’s going to buy a bale of used clothes to take advantage of the good season and take merchandise to the neighborhood street market and will also buy chicken meat to resell since it’s a product in high demand. Her goal is to work hard to improve sales and income to help pay for her children’s schooling.
