Maria Mercedes's story
María is a hard-working, honest, responsible, and serious person. She lives with her family in a village in the south of Honduras. She has been buying and selling clothes at her house for over 10 years. She also sells door-to-door in the neighbourhood. María needs the loan to buy items of clothing, such as trousers, shirts, shorts, and blouses. She hopes to increase her sales by having more to offer her customers and meeting their needs. This way, her family's financial circumstances will improve. María wants her business to keep growing and wishes to be the best-known clothes seller in her area. She wants to keep supporting her family and see her children grow into honest people with strong principles and values.
