Lilian Patricia's story

Señora Lilian H. is 35 years of age. She has a place where she sells meals and sweets in the Los Dolores Market in the capital city (Tegucigalpa). She begins cooking at 5 a.m. for breakfast and then lunch, and she finishes at five in the afternoon selling sweets. She works every day and the weekends are better for sales since that is when people go to market to do their week's shopping. That's when she does her best business since they always buy her meals. It bears mentioning that she has been in this business for twelve years. Right now she would like to buy more food since there are days when she has nothing to sell. That's why she needs this loan.
