A loan of $650 helped to buy clothing and peanuts.

Dolores Margarita's story

Dolores Margarita is 41 years old and a single mother with two children. She lives in one of the neighborhoods in the town of Nueva Frontera, Santa Barbará.

Doña Dolores has been selling merchandise for 10 years. She started her business in order to generate her own income since she was not receiving financial support from the father of her children. Doña Dolores sells merchandise as a street vendor by visiting various communities in the surrounding areas where she has established customers. She sells clothes such as trousers, blouses, and shirts, but she also sells food products in bulk, such as peanuts and instant soup packets. Dolores restocks her business by going to different communities.

She is requesting a loan of 12,000 HNL so that she can invest in the purchase of clothing and peanuts. This investment will increase her operating capital and help her generate better earnings. She will also have the necessary products to sell and to offer to the grocery stores. Dolores hopes in the future to obtain enough capital to buy a vehicle, which will enable her to travel around more easily as she continues to sell her products.
