Alba's story

Alba, 27, lives in a rural village in the municipality of Quimistán, Santa Bárbara with her spouse and two children. Alba worked for several years at an assembly plant but became unemployed 8 months ago and decided to use her savings to start her own grocery store business and sell basic staples. She sells basic grains, pills, lard, snacks, candy, noodles, sauce and eggs and in order to stock the store and increase sales and income has decided to request a 12,000 Lempira loan to buy more products like rice, sugar, beans, coffee, salt, bread, lard, eggs, medicine and cleaning supplies. Her goal is to keep the store stocked to offer greater amounts of products and increase her clientele because the good sales season is approaching. Her goal is to have a well-stocked large store to provide her children with schooling and also to build her own house.
