Bilma De Jesus's story

Bilma is 49 years old. She lives with her husband and daughter, who is dependent on them. She lives in a community called Trojes in eastern Honduras. She has her own home and has worked making donuts for the past 16 years.

Bilma's customers are friends and neighbors in her community. She is applying for this loan to buy materials such as flour, firewood, baking soda, oil, etc. for the preparation of her product, since in these months there are more affordable prices, and with the help of the loan she aims to satisfy the demand of her customers with this product.

Bilma dreams of further growing her business and improving her quality of life together with that of her family.
