Five years ago, Iris established her own grocery business where she sells basic staples such as grains, sugar, lard, cleaning products, canned goods, dairy products, soft drinks, donuts, and other items. Her business has remained stable as a result of investing the loans.
Iris is currently requesting her third loan in the amount of 5,500 HNL so that she can buy basic grains, sugar, lard, dairy products, soft drinks, donuts, and bread to sell. As a result, she will maintain her inventory of products. Over time she intends to diversify her business and provide better service to her customers. Her plan is to improve her family’s financial standing and their quality of life.
