A loan of $550 helped to buy merchandise for her corner shop.

Juana Francisca's story

Juana’s small grocery store is located in Benque Jamastran under the name “EMMY.” Little by little Juana has been able to increase her customer base by letting her clients who work in factories buy on credit and pay a little every day depending on their respective wages.

Juana is married and from her marriage there is one person who she is helping with their education.

Her husband is a shopkeeper with a vehicle that he uses for traveling to different communities and villages in the department of El Paraíso and Olancho to sell his products. With the income that Juana makes she helps her husband over certain household costs, as well as covering 100% of her personal expenses.

She is requesting a loan to invest into her business in order to offer a greater variety of products.
