Marilú started selling baleadas [ a Honduran delicacy] from her house. Later she decided to start selling candies and snacks. Her daily schedule is from 6:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The advantage is that she has a lot of customers and the only problem she faces is paying the rent for the locale. Marilú is asking for the loan to invst in buying a refrigerator since she needs to be able to sell beverages and water at her business for her customers to have more variety. With the support of this loan, she will be able to get the attention of more customers and continue having an economic activity that will allow her to cover her expenses. Her goal is to have her own locale and thus stop paying rent. Her dream is to build her bouse and help her children to become professionals. This is her first cycle with FAMA and she hopes to make her payments on time.
