Marlen's story

Marlen, 30, is a single mother of a three-year-old daughter. She has her own locale and has been working for the last year raising chickens. She sells her product packed and ready for consumption throughout the region. Her customers are all the grocery stores and small markets that place orders every two weeks and all the people form the community who come by her house to buy from her. Her business is located in the community of Espino La Montaña in south Honduras.

Marlen is asking for a 10,000 Lempira loan to buy feed concentrate, vaccines and vitamins for her farm. With profits and support from this loan Marlen wants to get ahead and continue improving her business and to provide better customer service.
