Luz María has her own store where she sells frozen treats (cones, ice cream, popsicles, and ice cream cups), sweets (all types of candy and gum), donuts, cookies, and other items. She established this business four years ago and rents a shop in the central part of town. Luz María is currently requesting her third loan in the amount of 25,000 HNL. The money will be used to buy more products to sell. She wants to maintain her inventory of sweets and frozen treats so that she can increase her sales and her income.
