Delmis Suyapa
Señora Delmis is a very hard-working and responsible person who lives in a town in the south of Honduras with her family. She has had a business selling clothing for the past six years, which operates out of her home in the town in which she lives and in nearby communities she visits to sell her wares.

She needs the loan to buy more products to continue her work, which really helps her since the earnings are very useful in her household. With the loan, she hopes to increase the amount of products in her business so that her sales increase significantly, which will help a lot because she doesn't have all the goods she needs to cover the orders she gets from customers on a daily basis. Thanks to this, she hopes to be able to improve her family's quality of life through a boost in household income.

In the short term, she hopes to grow her business, and in this way, continue to support her family and allow her children to study what they need to, so that they have better life opportunities.

La señora Delmis es una persona muy trabajadora y responsable vive en una comunidad al sur de Honduras junto a su familia. Su negocio es la venta de ropa, desde hace 6 años, la cual funciona en su casa de habitación en el municipio donde vive y lugares cercanos que ella recorre ofreciendo su producto. Necesita el préstamo para la compra de más productos para seguir realizando su trabajo; el cual le ayuda mucho ya que las ganancias son de mucha utilidad en el hogar. Con el préstamo espera incrementar la cantidad de productos de su negocio de tal manera que sus ventas aumenten de forma considerablemente, y que este le sirva de mucho ya que no cuenta con los productos necesarios para cubrir los pedidos solicitados por sus clientes a diario, y gracias a esto espera poder mejorar la calidad de vida de la familia con el aumento de los ingresos en el hogar. Ella espera en un corto plazo hacer crecer su negocio y con esto poder seguir apoyando a su familia y que sus hijos tengan los estudios necesarios, para que puedan tener mayores oportunidades en la vida.
