Maria Modesta's story

Maria Modesta is 30 years old, married, and has a son. She lives in a rural village in Lepaera municipality, in Lempira department. Five years ago she established her small grocery store business, where she sells basic household necessities such as corn, beans, rice, lard, candy, etc.

She gets up very early to run it. She's applying for a third loan of 15,000 lempiras, which she intends to use to buy products such as corn, rice, beans, soft drinks, candy, etc.

With this investment she will have more to offer her customers. Her goal is to continue improving by obtaining more loan assistance, so that her business can be stable.
