Maria Matias's story

Maria, 63, is single and has 6 children. She lives in a suburban neighborhood of San Pedro Sula along with 2 of her children. For 6 years, she has had a business making and selling corn tortillas. Maria is very hardworking. She makes tortillas all day to pay for her daily food and to cover the household expenses. She is requesting a loan of 6,000 Honduran lempiras to make some repairs to her business. She will fix the stove and the chimney. With this investment she will be able to provide better service and obtain more income. Maria's goal is to request another loan once this one is paid off so that she can buy an industrial stove and improve her production.
