G.s Los Girasoles Group's story

María is a very hardworking woman. She is 35 years old, has two children, and lives in the municipality of Tocoa, Colon. Three years ago, María established her business selling breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. The business is located in her residence. She also makes hors d'oeuvres and appetizers for birthday parties, baby showers, baptisms, and weddings.

She is requesting a group loan to buy supplies like staple grains, corn flour, wheat flour, meats, seafoods, vegetables, fruits, disposable items, and cleaning products. This loan will help her have more inventory to offer a variety of dishes. Her goal is to maintain her business in optimal condition.

She belongs to the Los Girasoles [The Sunflowers] group. They are requesting a loan of 60,000 Lempiras [HNL] to stock up their businesses. The group is made up of three people who work in different businesses selling clothing and food. They appear in the photograph from left to right: Kennia, María, Elba.
