A loan of $425 helped to buy supplies to make food to sell (corn flour and meat), and to buy snacks.

María Antonia's story

Maria, 58, is a single mother of 2. She lives in a rural community in the municipality of Gracias, which is in the department of Lempira.

Maria started her business selling food and snacks 8 years ago, with the goal of making a living through the business.

Maria makes tamales, ticucos (a traditional dish made from corn, condiments and meat), and bread to sell. She sells her dishes from place to place, and she also sells snacks, groceries, sweets and condiments from her home.

In order to stock up her business and buy supplies (corn flour and meat), she has requested a loan of 8,000 Honduran lempiras.

In the future, Maria plans to increase her sales and earnings so that she can support the daughter who is currently living with her.
