Alba, 45, is a single mother; she has four children and lives in the town of San Pedro Sula, Cortes, with three of her children.

She sells rice, beans, flour, sugar, lard, eggs, coffee, bread, candy, salt, cleaning supplies, snacks and soft-drinks. This store has been her source of income to support her family. She will use the 6,000 Lempira loan she’s requesting to stock her store with food items to keep her customers satisfied.
