G.s Laberinto 2 Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy children's clothing, like pants and shirts, and women's clothing and shoes to sell.

G.s Laberinto 2 Group's story

Alba is 39 years old, is in a civil union, has four children, and lives with her family in the municipality of Bonito Oriental, which borders Tocoa, Colon. She works selling clothing like underwear, pants, blouses, shirts, jeans, skirts and dresses, which she has been doing for 19 years, moving around in the local market.

She is asking for this loan to buy clothing for children, like pants and shirts, and women's clothing and shoes to sell. This will help her to buy new stock of children's clothing and achieve her goal of helping her children get a better education.

Alba belongs to the group G.s. Laberinto 2, and they are asking for 55,000 Honduran Lempiras to invest in clothing for men and women, as well as children. Pictured in the photo from right to left are Ruth, Alba and Maria.
