A loan helped to buy a solar powered freezer system to improve her general store and obtain better income.

Melba's story

Melba is 29 years old and she manages a general store which she started three years ago. She has also worked with livestock and farming since she was very young. She lives in the community of Colon, Honduras. Her husband, Junior, works abroad as a builder and he supports her with monthly remittances. This income helps her with the household expenses and her children's education. She aspires to having a quality business where her customers are satisfied with their purchases for household consumption. It is difficult because her community has no electricity. She thinks that by acquiring a solar powered freezer she will sell a wider variety of products and thus obtain better results with her sales. That is why she has decided to ask Soluz Honduras Financiamiento for a freezer system in order to improve her business and her family's living conditions.
