A loan of $275 helped to buy products for stocking her store, such as staple grains, medicines and bicycle parts.


Eugenia's story

Eugenia is 44 years old, and lives with her husband and six children in the municipality of Arizona, in Atlántida department.

She started her business selling food and general merchandise 12 years ago. She sells staple grains, coffee, sugar, cleaning and hygiene products, and medicines for common ailments.

Currently, she has requested a loan in the amount of 5,000 lempiras, which she intends to invest in the purchase of food products, as well as bicycle parts (tubes and tires) and crockery.

Eugenia says that she took out the loan in order to have working capital and improve sales. This will result in increased earnings that she will earmark for helping her children with their education and improving their quality of life.
