Maria Armenja's story

María is a 55 year old woman who is very enterprising and dedicated to her business. She lives with her daughter and grandchildren in the city of Choluteca.

María’s business is a grocery store. She sells many basic staple items there like lard, sugar, beans, rice, oil, margarine, condiments and other products.

María needs the loan to buy coffee, sugar, flour, soft-drinks, lime powder, fruit, vegetables, dairy products, noodles, snacks and others. She hopes that with this loan she’ll have more sales.

One of María's dreams is that her daughter graduate; she will graduate as a teacher this year. She also would like to open another similar store to help her daughter improve their lives.
