A loan of $425 helped to buy corn, lime, firewood, and a frying pan for her business.

Kenia Yakelin's story

Kenia is 32 years old and lives in the southern part of Honduras together with her two children and her husband. He supports her in her business activity, which she has been doing in the village where they live for five years.

Kenia's business is in an easily accessed location, which means that a lot of people visit it. She needs the loan so that she can buy corn, lime, firewood, and a frying pan. She expects that the loan will enable her to buy enough supplies to meet the daily demand of every one of her customers.

Kenia's future plan is to continue growing her business and to buy a tortilla-making machine so that she can generate a better income and have a better life.
