Lilian Yesenia's story

Lilian, 25, is married and has a son; she lives with her family in the municipality of San Pedro Sula, Cortés Department. Seven months ago Lilian decided to start selling food and basic staples in a grocery store. She was motivated to start said business in order to contribute towards her home and attain economic independence. She sells rice, corn and wheat flour, beans, sugar, sauces, personal hygiene and household supplies, common-use medicines, soft-drinks and snacks.

Lilian has requested a 25,000 Lempira loan to use to buy meat, vegetables, canned goods, dairy products, cleaning supplies and soft-drinks to better stock her store. Lilian mentions that she’s very grateful for the financial support provided because she will be able to improve her income this way and that will allow her to gradually grow in the business and continue supporting her family.
