A loan of $775 helped to purchase trousers, blouses, children's clothing and shirts for her business.

Clisanta's story

Clisanta is 63 years old and has eight children. Her house is located in the village of San Lorenzo, in the south of Honduras. She has been making traveling sales of used clothing for the past 20 years. Her customers are her friends, relatives and neighbors whom she visits three times a week. Clisanta is a single woman with a great deal of drive to get her family ahead.
Clisanta is requesting 15000 lempiras (HNL) in order to purchase trousers, blouses, children's clothing and shirts, since these kinds of garments sell very well this time of the year. With the support of this loan she intends to get the funding she needs for her business, and therefore increase her profits and improve her living conditions a bit.
Her dream is to see her business grow and her children who live in the US doing well.
San Lorenzo, Honduras, October 2012.
