Doris Elena's story

Doris, a 31 year old mother, lives with her husband and children in the city of San Lorenzo Valle, Honduras. Doris' business is selling clothing which she sells door to door in the suburbs of the city and the neighboring towns. She is requesting 5,000 lempiras to purchase merchandise such as women's and men's pants, blouses, shirts, underwear and children's outfits. In this way she will be able to improve her earnings and as a result improve her children's lives. Doris' dream is to establish her own store to be able to generate more profit and so her children can achieve a good level of education. With the help of this loan, she thinks that her family life and possibilities will further develop.
