Ilda, 53, is a single mother. She has 3 children, and lives with 2 of them in the municipality of Peña Blanca Cortes. Ilda has had a business for 12 years, making and selling fast food such as: empanadas stuffed with meat, pupusas (a thick, stuffed corn tortillla), flour tortillas, tortillas with cheese, fried chicken with plantains, beverages, and other items. She has set up this business in a rented locale, and this is where she serves her customers.

Ilda has already received 4 loans in varying amounts. This one is for the sum of 28,000 Honduran lempiras. She will invest this sum in the purchase of raw materials such as: flour, butter, salt, condiments, meat, cheese, beans, and other supplies. In addition, she will use about 10 percent of the loan to pay off a small debt she has with a private individual. The reason she will take this loan is to stock up on supplies so that she can meet her customers' demand. In the future, she plans to expand her business, because the place that she has now is very small, and she wants to be able to provide better service.
