Maira Quintina's story

Maira is 32 and lives in southern Honduras with her children and husband, who is also a merchant. She helps him sell fruits, a local business he has had for 7 years. The business is easily accessible and has high traffic because it is in the center of the neighborhood.

Maira needs the loan to buy grapes, apples, bananas, plantains, lychees, avocados, watermelons, melons, pineapples, and oranges. Through the loan, she expects to increase her sales with the wide variety of items she will have that meet the needs of her customers who shop daily. Maira´s plan is to keep growing her business and generating a good income so that she will have a better standard of living.
