A loan of $950 helped to buy shoes and clothes.


María Aracely's story

María, 38, is a single mother; she has three children and lives in the marginal urban community of Terencio Sierra, Chamelecón Sector in San Pedro Sula, Cortés. She started selling shoes 8 years ago and now also sells women’s, men’s and children’s clothes. Her two younger children are still in school so she works hard to increase profits. She has requested her second loan to stock her business with new shoes and clothes. She believes that by offering a variety of products her customer base will increase as will her profits. María will continue to strive to raise her children and provide them education and a better quality of life.
