G.s. Fuente De Vida El Retiro Group's story

Teodora, 62, is single and has 7 children. She lives in the municipality of Arizona Atlántida with her son, daughter-in-law and a grandchild. More than a year ago, she started a business making and selling costume jewelry, such as: necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets. She makes these products by hand, with tweezers. She makes a variety of designs based on the requests of her customers, and her products are sold in the community. She is requesting a loan for 5,000 Honduran lempiras to buy more supplies, such as: wire, stones, rivets, clasps, and other items to make the jewelry. With this investment, she will expand her business so that she can generate more income and improve the quality of life for herself and her family. She is requesting a loan within a communal bank called "Fuente de la Vida El Retiro." The group is made up of 3 people who are identified in the photo as follows: at the left is Teresa, who has a grocery store; in the center is Teodora; and at the right is Maria Irma.
