A loan of $1,075 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.

Sandra Maritza's story

Sandra, 24, is married and lives with her husband and son in a village that belongs to Quimistan municipality in Santa Bárbara. Sandra has always liked commerce and two years ago decided to open her own grocery store to sell foodstuffs like basic grains, sugar, cleaning supplies, salt, lard, eggs, soft-drinks, snacks, condiments, canned goods, bread, etc. She has a good variety of products in the grocery store and she has a very good clientele.

She’s requesting a 21,000 Lempira loan to stock the store with items like eggs, lard, basic grains, sugar, salt, coffee, bread, dairy products, meats, cleaning supplies, canned goods, snacks and soft-drinks. With this investment she’ll keep the store well-stocked and meet customer demand. Her goal is to always have a source of income to help her family live better.
