Leila Maribel's story
Señora Leila is 54 years old. She is married and lives in the municipality of Omoa in Cortes, together with her son and one grandchild. It's been seven years since she established her own convenience store business where she sells food products such as rice, sugar, corn, beans, sausages, sodas, churros (a kind of doughnut), bread, sweets, eggs, dairy products, etc. Leila is requesting a loan of 5,000 lempiras to better stock her business as she has good demand. She will purchase basic grains, sausages, sodas, juice, and groceries. She wants her business to be stable, and to keep it always stocked so that she can sell more and have a better quality of life.
