Yeny's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy a solar freezer system, which will help her improve her income in her grocery business.

Yeny's story

Yeny lives in a community in Atlantida, Honduras. She lives with her son and her husband, who works in agricutlure, growing cacao and coffee. She is 35 years old and she is a very enterprising woman. That is why, with her own hard work, she has this grocery business where she has sold food and other products of general consumption for four years. In order to expand her business, she wants to incorporate the sale of dairy products, mean, beverages, ice and other products that need refrigeration. However, right now she has a restriction, because the area where Yeny and her family live has no access to electricity. Because of this, she is asking for a loan from Soluz Honduras ro obtain a solar freezer system. This will help her to better serve her customers. Above all, she won't spend money on ice and she won't have to travel great distances to obtain it. This way, her business will grow her profits and her customers will be satisfied.
