Gs Los Higueros Group's story

Carmen is 40 years old, and she lives with her spouse and their three children in their house, located in the Higüeros community in southern Honduras. She makes a living selling Honduran pastries: rosquillas (donuts), hojaldras (puff pastries), tustacas (cookies) and quesadillas (cheesecakes) in the community where she lives and their outskirts.

Carmen requests this loan to buy products like firewood, corn, flour and sugar which are the products she needs to make her goods. With the support of this loan, Carmen would like to continue investing in her business and keep it growing like the business of the other partners in her group who make a living in their general store and tamale sales. Her partners are Liliana and Maria who are both residents of the Higüeros community. Carmen's dream is to be able to improve her house.

In this group: Carmen Marlene, Liliana Lizett, Maria Georgina
