A loan of $775 helped to buy merchandise to stock her store.


Concepción's story

Concepción, 62, is a single mother of six children. She lives in the company of one of her sons in an urban community in San Pedro Sula, Cortés Department. She used to sell snacks and five years ago her sister passed down to her a grocery store where she sells food items: eggs, soft-drinks, meats, dairy products and cleaning supplies (soap, detergent, mops, brooms and chlorine bleach).

She’s currently asking for a 15,000 Lempira loan to buy lard, instant soups, canned food, common use medicines and snacks. She hopes that by having her store well-stocked her sales will increase since the Christmas season is approaching. Concepción hopes her business will grow so she can rest a bit after working her entire life.
