Jesica Maria's story

Mrs Jesica Maria S. is 36 years old. She lives in Aurora district and sells sweet treats, breakfasts and lunches. Her business is located in San Miguel market in the city of Tegucigalpa. This is a good location because a lot of people pass through here. Her business is open from Monday to Saturday.

She will use her loan to buy supplies for making her meals since if she buys these wholesale she can get them at a lower price. She needs the profits from her business to get herself and her family ahead in life.
