Lidia Marina
Lidia, age 60, lives with her common-law husband. She has a son, and she lives in a community in the Las Vegas municipality in the Santa Barbará department.

Lidia has been making and selling ‘tajadas de plátano verde’ [sliced and fried green plantains] for nine years. As an additional business activity she sells ‘chicharrones’ [fried pork rinds], clothes, and plastic products. She was motivated to establish her business in order to help her husband with the family expenses.

She has currently requested a loan for 7,500 lempiras. She plans to use the loan to buy green plantains, cooking oil, and condiments in order to make the tajadas. She believes that the loan helps increase her production and her sales in other areas where her product (tajadas) is in greater demand.

Her goal is to be able to buy a vehicle in order to be able to transport her production more rapidly.
