A loan of $600 helped to buy fruits and vegetables.

María Del Carmen's story

Doña María del Carmen sells fruits and vegetables. She is 50 years old and lives with her husband Lucio. They don't need to support their children, because these have formed their own families. Doña María acquired her business skills 30 years ago when she helped her parents in their business. Since that time she has been actively selling on market days at the municipal market and on the other days hawking through the streets. The family lives in Corinto in the department of Morazán.

Doña María wants to invest in her business by buying fruits and vegetables to sell. She applies for a loan to carry out the investment, which will enable her to offer a diversified choice of fresh fruits and vegetables to her customers.

In future she wants to continue with further loans to invest in her business and achieve financial stability.
