A loan of $525 helped to buy meat and canned goods.


Yesica Marilu's story

Yesica, 27, is married and has two children. She lives in the municipality of Macuelizo, Santa Bárbara with her husband, children and her mother. Four years ago Yesica decided to start her own business where she sells basic staples like soft-drinks, bread, sugar, lard, flour, vegetables, cereals, condiments, etc. She covers many household expenses and contributes to family income by means of this business.

With the 10,000 Lempira loan she’s requesting she will meet customer demand because she is going to buy meat and canned goods that she’s out of thus increasing sales and profits. Her plan is to buy a house because the one she lives in is her mother’s and to continue supporting her children’s schooling.
