Maria Aracelis's story
María Aracelis is 53 years old and lives with her husband in a San Lorenzo neighborhood in southern Honduras. She has been selling food products such as rice, beans, lard, eggs, tomato paste, soft drinks, instant soup, etc. for the past 10 years. María Aracelis’ customers are her friends and neighbors who arrive to buy her products. She is a very enterprising woman and needs this loan to buy beans, water, sugar, soft drinks, lard, etc., so that she can have a good selection and be able to continue working. Each loan has helped her improve her business. María Aracelis’ dream is to expand her business. San Lorenzo, Honduras - September 2013.
