Aracely's story

Aracely is 37. She is married, has three children, and lives with her husband and two of her children, in the municipality of Yoro.

She set up her own store three years ago, where she sells basic household goods, such as lard, rice, sugar, salt, pasta, sweets, canned goods, soap, condiments, etc.

She keeps this business stocked by reinvesting her earnings, and now has good customer demand. She requested this loan, in the amount of 13,000 lempiras, in order to restock and increase sales.

She will buy more products for everyday use, such as rice, sugar, lard, flour, salt, churros (fried dough treat), soft drinks, sweets, and other items.

Her goal is to continue working with the store, in order to increase her income and help her family.
