A loan of $2,000 helped a member to purchase alcohol, fixative, propylene glycol, and essential oils.


G.s. La Peña Group's story

Hilda is a very hard-working woman. She has worked making fragrances, creams, and disinfectants for 10 years, since she got this business as part of a project from the Honduran Red Cross. She also has worked selling cosmetics for 10 years, since this is a product with very high demand in this area. In her personal goals, she would like to be able to work with her own capital and expand her business and customer base.

Hilda is asking for the support of the loan to purchase alcohol, fixative, prpylene glycol and essential oils to make her fragrances and have a variety of products to offer her customers and, so, to generate more income.

Hilda dreams of being able to get ahead and becoming a great producer of fragrances and disinfectants in the area.

She is asking for the support of the loan as a group with the following people: Julio, who has been the owner of his own store for 6 years, and Suyapa, who works selling cosmetics, glass dish sets, and in addition is starting to sell fragrances.
