A loan of $775 helped a member to buy lime powder, corn, firewood and a pan.


Gs Jerusalen Group's story

María, 37, lives in south Honduras with her two children and her husband who backs her up in all of her commitments. Her business is selling tortillas, an activity she started 7 years ago at home. Her business has a location that’s easily accessible for each one of her customers since it’s on her neighborhood’s main street and this leads to high demand.

María needs the loan to buy lime powder, corn, firewood and a pan. The impact she expects from the loan is to meet customer demand since she will buy enough product to respond to demand from all of her customers who start coming by starting very early in the morning.

Her future plan is to continue growing in her activity so that she can provide her children with a better education and in order to have a better quality of life.

Santos sells varied merchandise and María Cristina sells tortillas and plastic ware.
