A loan of $525 helped to buy cattle for her business.


Maria Lucrecia's story

María is a hardworking, responsible, and honest person. She lives with her children in the community of La Chorrera, in the south of Honduras. Her business is the buying and selling of cattle.

María needs the loan to buy cattle. With the loan she expects to have more cattle to offer and this will increase her sales. The income obtained will improve her and her family’s standard of living.

For the future, María hopes that her business will grow and that she will be the best-known person in this business so that she can continue supporting her family so that they can live a much better life.
