Gloria Estela's story

Gloria, 38 years old, lives with her partner and her 2 children in her house in the community of Guayabo Nacaome in the southern part of Honduras. For 9 years, she has sold food products such as chicken, meat, sausages, milk products, and groceries such as soap, sardines, toilet paper, etc., at her business located in her house. Her customers are her neighbors and friends who visit her daily. They prefer her because she is friendly and treats them well. Gloria is asking for 10,000.00 lempiras to buy juice, churros, pasta, vegetables, milk products, staple grains, meat, chicken, sausages, and other products. With the help of the loan, she intends to provide the necessary financing for her business and also improve her income. Gloria's dream is to further improve her business and expand her house.
