Maria Teresa's story

Teresa, 30, lives in the south of Honduras with her children and husband who supports her economic activity. Her business is selling food and snacks, work she’s been doing for five years. Her business is located in a strategic spot with many passersby and this makes it highly visited.

Teresa needs the loan to buy corn, beans, rice, meat, eggs, canned goods, soft-drinks, vegetables, etc. She expects the impact of this loan will be greatly increased sales because she will buy quite a bit of product to be able to meet each and every order placed daily by her customers. In the future, Teresa plans to continue growing with her commercial activity and come to own a restaurant to generate better income and provide better quality of life for her family.
