Marcelina's story

Marcelina, age 56, is a single mother with no dependents. She lives with her elderly mother. Her house is in the city of Nacaome in the southern part of Honduras. Every day she goes to the Nacaome market and surrounding areas to sell plastic products, clothes and shoes.

Marcelina is requesting 10,000 lempiras to buy shoes and underwear. With the support of the loan she will invest more in her business, and she will have better income.

Marcelina’s dream is to continue working and improving her business. She also dreams of improving her house.
