A loan of $625 helped to buy corn, lime, and firewood for her business.


Juana's story

Señora Juana is 56 years old. She lives in the southern part of Honduras. Her daughter lives with her and helps her in her business. Her business is selling tortillas, an activity she has been doing for 8 years in her house. Her business is located at a point of easy access, since it is in the center of the community where she lives.

Doña Juana needs the loan to buy corn, lime, firewood, etc. The impact that she expects from the loan is that her sales will increase, since she will buy enough products to meet the daily demands of her customers.

Doña Juana's plans for the future are to continue growing in her business and to buy a machine for making tortillas, and at the same time to generate good income to have a better quality of life.
