Maria Josefa's story

Maria Josefa is 68 years of age. She is married, and has five children who are now adults and have jobs. She lives with her husband in a small village in the municipality of Choloma, Cortes.

Maria Josefa’s source of income is her small grocery store. She started this business two years ago, and sells staple goods such as flour, beans, rice, sugar, lard, medicine, candies, and grocery items, among others. She is a very enterprising woman, and has supplied her grocery store with the items that are needed by her customers.

Maria Josefa has requested a loan of 10,000 Honduran Lempiras to purchase products to supply her grocery store, such as lard, rice, beans, flour, dairy products, chicken and others. This will allow her to give her customers a better service in terms of the products she sells. Her goal is to save so that she has financial support for any problems that may arise in the future.
