Juana's story

Juana, 60, is married and has five children who are adults; she lives with her husband and grandson in the town of Esparta, Atlántida. She opened a small grocery store two years ago where she sells food items like rice, sugar, bread, soft-drinks, snacks, candy, coffee, beans, etc. and medicines. She tends to her grocery store at home and her husband sells medicines like pills and others. She’s requesting a 5,000 Lempira loan to stock her store with more products like basic grains, soft-drinks, snacks and medicine. Her goal is to improve sales to earn higher income and improve her quality of life. She intends to continue working and retaining her own source of income.
