Blanca Idalia
Blanca lives in the city of Tegucigalpa. She is a single mother with two children, which are studying in public school and college. With the support of her sister, she decided to open a small grocery store where she sells rice, eggs, soft drinks, toilet paper, diapers, and other products.

With the profits, Blanca has been buying products, but still does not have enough to meet the demand of her clients. The majority of her clients are neighbors and people passing by the small shopping center in front of her home.

Blanca has little inventory and does not have sufficient capital to invest. She is requesting a loan of 15,000 lempiras ($775) to buy beans, rice, sugar, coffee, bread, salsas, pasta, milk, butter, margarine, soap, and toilet paper.

One of Blanca's dreams is to expand her space and to be able to offer her clients a variety of products.
