Sandra Suyapa
Sandra lives in Tegucigalpa, with her husband, and four children who attend the public school in the city. She has been selling second hand clothing, such as shirts, pants, skirts, and children’s clothing for ten years. Each morning, since her mother lives along a main street in their neighborhood, she sets up a small stand there, where she can show her merchandise to people who pass through.

Sandra has steady customers who always make requests. She travels to the market once a week to buy clothing but she doesn’t have much inventory at the moment due to lack of capital. She is asking for a loan to buy skirts, pants, dresses, blouses, shirts, socks, and sweaters to stock her business over this Christmas season when she has many requests.

Sandra’s dream is to have her own store and sell new clothing and sandals.
