Agripina's story

Agripina is 52 years old, and lives in the village of Hicaque in the Arizona municipality. She is a single mother, and has two children, ages 20 and 23. Both her children have already graduated from school. All three of them contribute to covering the family expenses.

For the last 11 years Agripina has worked in an itinerant manner selling merchandise such as lotions, creams, cosmetics, gold plated jewelry, and sandals. She works six hours daily in her business. She has been re-investing her earnings to be able to make her business grow.

She has currently requested a loan for 10,000 lempiras to buy new products.

She says that her business has improved with the loans she has received. This has allowed her to be responsible with her payments and to contribute to the family expenses.
