Digna's story

Digna is 48 years old, she is single and lives with her son and her daughter-in-law in a neighbourhood of the town of San Lorenzo, in the south of Honduras. She has been tending to her general store for twenty years. She sells rice, sweetcorn, broad beans, fizzy drinks, vegetables. Her customers are neighbours and friends; they come every day. Digna asks for a loan of 21,000 lempiras to buy supplies such as sweetcorn, fizzy drinks, detergents, water, dairy products, meat and other necessary items to better answer the needs of her customers. Thanks to this loan, she hopes to increase her income and improve her standard of living. Digna dreams of having a better-stocked shop and of making improvements to her house.
