Mayra Yamileth
Mrs. Mayra Yamileth L. is 35 years old and has been selling shoes for many years. She sold them at a local market on Fifth Avenue in Comayaguela, but she lost her entire business due to a fire on July 30th. Everything was completely reduced to ashes and the loss was approximately $3,750. She is requesting a loan to restart her business since she doesn't have capital to reinvest in more products. The mayor of Tegucigalpa is going to help rebuild the wooden market stalls, but if this doesn't happen, she is going to become a travelling salesperson in the meantime. She lives with her husband who works as a security guard at a private business. Her earnings help provide food and education for her two daughters. It was very sad talking with Mayra because she is in low spirits after the loss of her business. Her short-term goal is to start selling shoes again now that peak season is approaching.
