Zoila Rosa
Doña Zoila is 44, married, and has 2 children that depend on her. She lives in her mother's home in San Lorenzo, Honduras. Zoila has a business buying and selling used clothing on the outskirts of an old market in San Lorenzo. There she sells pants, shirts, blouses, children's clothing, swimsuits, etc.

With this loan, she will buy more used clothing since the demand for this kind of product is very good this time of year. Her customers are her friends and neighbors that visit her daily. In this way, she will obtain better profits and be able to buy her children their school supplies and other materials that they need for elementary and secondary school.

Zoila's dream is to have another business and a larger location to display her merchandise.
