Gs Los Angelitos No. 1 Group's story

Sra. Olimpia is an honest, responsible, and hardworking person. She lives with her husband and their three children in the community of Los Angelitos in southern Honduras. Her business involves buying and selling pigs.

Doña Olimpia needs a loan so that she can buy pigs. With this loan, she hopes to increase her sales since she will have more pigs to offer to the customers who visit her and to meet their needs. Olimpia also wants to improve her family’s lifestyle at home with this investment. In a few years, Doña Olimpia hopes that her business will be positioned as the largest and most well-known in the area so that she can continue supporting her children. She wants them to become good people and to have better opportunities.
