A loan of $1,025 helped to buy vegetables and legumes.

Waldina Beatris's story

Waldina, 24, is single living with her mother and siblings in an urban community in the municipality of San Pedro Sula, Cortés Department. Seven years ago Waldina decided to open a vegetable and legume business; she has a stand that’s apt for sales. She sells chayote, manioc, bananas, taro root, carrots and potatoes. She was motivated to start said business in order to attain economic independence and to help support her mother and siblings.

Waldina has requested a 20,000 Lempira loan to buy a wider variety and larger amounts of vegetables like kidney beans, onions, chilies, cauliflower and potatoes. She states that she’s very grateful for the financial support provided because she’ll be able to improve her income this way that will make it possible for her business to grow and for her to continue supporting her family.
