A loan of $1,200 helped purchase merchandise for the business.


Senia Del Carmen's story

Senia, who is 23 years old, lives in Corinto in the Morazán department. She lives with her husband Cándido and they have one daughter, Evelyn, who is 2 years old. They live in Senia's brother's house. She works managing a store where she sells the basic necessities. The shop hours are from 6:30 am until 7:00 pm. She learned the business from her brother. Right now she's requesting a loan in order to purchase merchandise and supply the business with some products that are in high demand from her customers. Her only risk is sales made on credit, since some customers don't return to pay off their accounts. Her dream is to grow the business, increase her clientele, and help her family more and more, especially her daughter, so that she has the necessities and they can have a more promising future.
