Santa Rosa Group's story

Eméria, age 48, lives in a village in southern Honduras. She is a very enterprising person who has always been devoted to working. She has a general store where she sells groceries like lard, rice, chicken, soap, and sausages. She also sells meals to her main customers who work close to this area, and she sells meals to her neighbors.

Emerita is requesting a loan for 10,000 lempiras to buy bologna, chicken, soap, basic grains, and other edible products. She believes that, with the help of this loan, she will be able to stock her business more. This way she will generate more income in order for her family’s betterment.

Emérita’s dream is to enjoy good health so that she can continue working on the growth of her business.

María Martha and María Luisa also have businesses selling groceries. They are a group of very united women.
