Mercedes's story

Mercedes is 49 years old and is single. She has two adult daughters, and lives with one of them in the municipality of Langue in the south of Honduras.

Mercedes makes a living selling hammocks and rope in Langue's municipal market. For several years, she has worked in this business and her products are bought by customers in the country as well as foreigners.

Mercedes is requesting a loan of 10,000.00 Lempiras to purchase hammocks and rope to better supply the business, to have a larger variety of products and to make her costumers feel happy to find quality products.

Mercedes's plan is to build a store in Langue's market and as a result have a strategic sales point to increase her customer base. Mercedes dreams about having a strong business to help her daughters and make their lives better.
