Mirian Suyapa's story

Mirian, 30, is married and has three children. She lives in company of her family in a rural community in Nueva Frontera Municipality, Santa Bárbara Department. Mirian did domestic chores but two years ago decided to open a grocery store where she sells basic staples, basic grains, bread, meat, soft-drinks, cleaning and personal hygiene products, lard and snacks. She’s currently asking for a 15,000 Lempira loan to buy meat, sugar, groceries, cleaning supplies, snacks, soft-drinks and medicine. Mirian thinks that by making this investment her customers as well as her profits will increase. Her goal is to support her children’s education so that they will be good professionals; she also wants her business to be competitive.
