Simona’s an honest, hardworking, responsible woman living with her two children in southern Honduras. Her business is selling snacks. She needs the loan to buy meat, corn, condiments, etc. She hopes her sales will increase with the loan because she’ll have more products on hand to fill orders for customers that visit her stand daily since her stand is located at customs and it’s much visited every day. With her increase in income at home she and her family will be able to have a better quality of life.

In future, Simona would like to have an actual physical space to be able to sell at a traffic circle because at the moment she does not have one and she’d be able to continue supporting her family this way and supporting her children’s schooling.
