A loan of $775 helped a member to buy soft drinks and spare parts for her grain mill.

Gs Nueva Vision Group's story

Sra. Martina, age 55, lives with her husband in their own home that is located in a community in southern Honduras. She sells soft drinks and also has a mill for grinding corn. Martina has been in business for 15 years and works from home. Her customers are all of her neighbors from the community.

Doña Martina is requesting a loan so that she can buy soft drinks and spare parts for her grain mill. With this loan, she hopes to generate better earnings since the final months of the year are when her sales usually improve.

With the support of this loan, Doña Martina plans to continue investing in her business and growing alongside her fellow group members. Doña María and Doña Hilda are residents of the same community and earn their living by selling tortillas, Nicaraguan tamales, bread, and pottery.

Doña Martina hopes to have a business that is well-stocked for her community so that she can provide better service to her customers.
