Gs Cedeño Iii Group's story

Gladis, 35, lives in south Honduras. Her two children and her husband live with her. He helps her with her activity which is selling groceries in general. She’s been in business five years in her community. Her store is located in an easily accessed spot since it’s in the center of her village and also along the main street which makes it highly visited. Gladis needs the loan to buy corn, beans, meats, cured meats, bread, oil, soap, lard, dairy products, sugar and others. She hopes that the impact of this loan will be increased sales since she will buy a variety of products thus being able to meet each of her customer’s needs. Gladis’ future plan is to continue to grow every day as well as to generate increased income to give her children a good education as well as to have a better quality of life. José sells groceries and Ritza sells seafood and tortillas. Choluteca, Honduras-July, 2012.
