A loan of $800 helped to buy assorted groceries.

Lesbia Danubia's story

Lesbia Danubia M. H., 43, is married and has no children. She lives in the Porvenir Norte neighborhood in the city of Juticalpa, Olancho. Lesbia has had a grocery store for the last four years called “Pulpería Hernández.” Her husband helped her start the business with some money he had saved up and he decided this was the best way to invest it. Her husband helps her tend to the store while she takes care of household chores. She is open for business from 6am until 9pm. Her greatest advantage is that her grocery store is the best stocked in the entire neighborhood and this leads to her having a large customer base.

She needs the loan she requested to better stock the store with a larger variety of items that form a family’s basic grocery cart. Support from the loan will make it possible for her to retain her customers that visit her store because she’ll have everything they need to buy for their homes.

Her challenge is reaching a point of economic stability that will permit her to start saving in order to buy a house because she is currently renting.

Her dream is to become a mother so she plans to adopt two small children and continue to work every day to support them and give them good living conditions.

She has been a FEMA client for two cycles and has shown punctuality and responsibility in her repayments and expects to continue to do so.
