G.s Las Socias De Soplamico Group's story

Teresa is a kind 41-year-old woman. She's in a common-law relationship and lives with her partner in the municipality of Islas de la Bahía.

For two years, she's been running a grocery store where she sells rice, sugar, ground coffee, vegetable oil, butter, vegetables, fruit, meat, seafood, candy, refreshments, corn and beans.

The income she earns from this business covers her household and food expenses. She is requesting a group loan to buy rice, sugar, ground coffee, vegetable oil, butter, vegetables, fruit, meat, seafood and candy.

This loan will help her maintain inventory and variety in her store for her clients. Her goal is to expand her grocery store and open a food sales business.

Teresa is part of the group called "Las socias de Soplamico" and they are requesting a loan of 45,000.00 Lempiras to buy rice, sugar, ground coffee, vegetable oil, butter, vegetables, fruit, meat, seafood and candy.

There are three members in this group and they all run the same type of business. In the photo, from left to right: Teresa, María and Agripina.
