Esla Diosana's story

Esla, 41, is a single mother who lives with her 4 children in the city of La Esperanza in the department of Intibucá. For more than 15 year, she has had her own business selling shoes, plastic products, trinkets and appliances and household goods such as juicers, umbrellas, irons, plates, etc. Her business is established in the market in her community. She has requested various loans to keep her business running. The loan that she is now requesting will be her ninth, and it is for 15,000 Honduran lempiras. She will use the loan to buy trinkets, household appliances, shoes and other products to sell, because the good season for sales is approaching and she wants to have her business well stocked. Esla's goal is to increase her sales and her income so that she can continue to improve the quality of life for herself and her family.
