Maria Julia's story

María is 48 years of age, married, and has no dependent children. She works selling grocery items and fresh foods in her grocery store, which is located in her house in a community in Amapala, in the south of Honduras. She has worked in this business for 11 years, and is a hard-working woman with a huge desire to get ahead in life.

María has requested a loan of 22,000.00 Honduran Lempiras to buy merchandise such as fresh food, milk, corn, beans, rice, sugar, meat, cold cuts, coffee, bread, eggs and other basic items. With the support of this loan, she would like to buy more supplies to sell in her business and, in this way, have more income that will help her household to get ahead. María’s dream is to make improvements to her house.
