Melecia's story

Doña Melecia is 47 years old, married, and has four children. She lives in her own home with her husband and their four children. They reside in the Department of Valle in southern Honduras. Doña Melecia's business involves selling tortillas from her home in the southern part of Honduras.

She is requesting a loan in the amount of 8,000 so that she can buy corn and firewood. This will help her business generate more sales so that her income will improve. Doña Melecia dreams of obtaining a larger loan in the future so that she can purchase a machine for making tortillas. By doing so, she will be able to increase her income and provide a better living status for her children.
