María Lastenia's story

María is 43 years old. She is a single mother of two daughters aged 18 and 21. She lives with her daughters in the "2 de julio" community in the Petoa municipality, Santa Barbara, bordering the Cofradía Cortes sector.

For several years, María has made a living selling food (fried chicken, fried cutlet, soft drinks, ice cream, and churros), devoting 11 hours a day of continuous work. Through her own effort and the financial support through loans, she started her food sales business in order to obtain an economic family improvement. At present, she has requested one more loan to the institution in the amount of 25,000 lempiras, which plans to invest in the purchase of inputs such as meats, vegetables, spices, rice, beans, cornmeal, and others to prepare meals, plus the purchase of soft drinks to sell.

María's future goal is to buy a plot of land for farming.
