A loan of $375 helped to buy firewood for her business.


Santa Margarita's story

Santa is an enterprising, responsible person. She lives in a community in southern Honduras. She sells firewood for a living and she has had this business for several years now. She serves all of her family members, neighbors, and friends, who use her product every day. Santa is asking for a loan to buy firewood to better serve her customers with more product.

Santa is asking Prisma Honduras for the amount of 7,000 lempiras to invest in her business for an eight-month term.

Her main dream is to get her family ahead to have better living conditions.
