A loan of $275 helped to buy corn, lime powder and firewood.

Olga Marina's story

Olga, 41, is a single mother living with her three children and two grandchildren. She rents her house because she does not own a house of her own. For the last twenty years she’s been working making and selling tortillas. Her business is located in a neighborhood in Nacaome, Valle in south Honduras and she sells from home. Her customers prefer her because of her kind, good customer service.

Olga is asking for a 5000 Lempira loan to buy corn, lime powder and firewood. With support from this loan she intends to cover the financial need her business has and continue with her project of completing building her house since that dream is about to become a reality. With profits generated from the loan she wants to meet some other needs she and her family have.
