A loan of $800 helped buy soaps, toothpaste, toilet paper, creams, deodorants, toys, and hair gel.


Dora's story

Dora O. C., age 40, lives in the Sagrado Corazon neighborhood in the city of Choluteca. Dora is a merchant, and she sells products like toothpaste, creams, deodorants, toys, hair gel, and other products. She has been doing this type of work for several years.

Her business is located in the commercial area where a lot of people pass by walking. This makes for good sales.

She will use the loan to buy more merchandise because sales are very good. She wants to keep a good inventory of each of the products that she sells. She needs the earnings to cover the expenses for her family and her home.
