Dilcia Marlene's story

Dilcia is 37 years old and has two children. She lives in the town of Villanueva, Cortes.

One year ago, Dilcia opened her own store where she sells basic household products such as spices, rice, beans, lard, sugar, coffee, bread, groceries, distilled water, soft drinks, and other items. She previously worked at a factory and used her savings to start this business, which now serves as her source of income.

Dilcia is requesting a loan of 11,000 HNL so that she restock her business with more household products such as basic grains, sugar, pasta, distilled water, soft drinks, and other items. With this investment, she will be able to offer her customers a variety of products and thereby maintain an established clientele. Her dream is to always succeed at growing her business so that she can provide a better life for her family.
