Candida Rosa's story

Cándida, age 69, is married and has four adult children. She lives with her husband and one of her children in a suburban neighborhood of San Pedro Sula.

Cándida previously worked as a teacher, but the lack of employment made her decide to establish her own source of income. She decided to do this in order to contribute to her household. She opened a grocery store in order to sell food staples like basic grains, dairy products, meat, bread, soft drinks, flour, and eggs, etc. She has had this business for ten years. She has persevered in order to succeed at maintaining it and getting the income needed for her family.

She is requesting a loan for 10,000.00 lempiras to stock the products that she needs in her store. She will buy things like basic grains, meat, eggs, and dairy products, etc. to satisfy her customers.

Her goal is to keep her business stocked in order to generate a secure income for her family.
