Iris Suyapa's story

Iris is 25 years old. She lives with her husband and two children in a neighborhood in the community of Azacualpa, Santa Bárbara. One year ago, she decided to invest her savings in a convenience store and then reinvest her profits from the merchandise she sold. Iris sells food products and groceries such as rice, sugar, lard, snacks, flour, canned goods, condiments, toilet paper, soap, shampoo, hair clips, hairpins, and other items.

Iris has now decided to obtain a loan so that she can have a variety of products to offer to her customers in order to grow her business even more. The loan is in the amount of 21,000 HNL and will be used to purchase basic grains, eggs, lard, soft drinks, dairy products, bread, snacks, sugar, and other grocery items. Her goal is to become a good businesswoman and help her family as much as she can. Her greatest wish is to convert her business into a supermarket.
