Nely Antonia's story

Nely Antonia is 32 years old. She lives in the village of El Níspero, Santa Bárbara together with her three children who are three, eight, and eleven years old. Nely worked for a bit in a factory and one and a half years ago she started her own business through her own efforts.

She sells basic needs products like staple grains. sugar, rice, lard, flour, eggs, chicken, cleaning products, bread, etc. Due to the fact that the neighbors have to walk a long distance to reach the other small grocery store, she took advantage of the chance to invest in her own small grocery store. Little by little she is reinvesting her profits into expanding her inventory.

To keep the business supplied she is requesting a loan for 15,000.00 lempiras to buy staple grains, sugar, rice, lard, bread flour and other things. Her goal is to keep the store supplied, make it grow, and make sure that her children become professionals.
