Argelia Nohemy's story

Argelia, age 36, is married and has two children. She lives in a village in the Macuelizo municipality in Santa Bárbara. Her husband does tailoring and farming work.

Five years ago Argelia decided to have her own source of income in order to contribute to the household expenses. She established a convenience store in her house. She sells consumer staples like rice, beans, sugar, sausages, meat, dairy products, sweets, churros, cereals, soft drinks, and eggs, etc.

The loan she is requesting is for 10,000 lempiras. She will use it to stock her business with food products in order to meet the demand from her customers and to increase sales. Her wish is for her business to grow and become a mini-supermarket or a robust grocery store.
