Marta Rosa's story

Sra. Marta is a 57-year-old single mother of two children. She lives with her family in the town of Quimistan, which is located in the Department of Santa Barbará.

Doña Marta has been selling food as a street vendor for more than 12 years. She prepares and sells food such as corn tortillas, rice, beans, and fried chicken. In order to sell her food, Marta has a strategic location along the highway the stretches all the way to western Honduras (up to the town of La Ceibita). She offers her food to the passengers who travel by bus.

Instead of being indebted to the local grocery stores, Marta decided to request a loan in the amount of 20,100 HNL. The money will be spent on supplies used for preparing her dishes.
