Seydi Xiomara's story

Seydi, 27, is a young, single woman living in her mother’s house with her younger siblings. She lives in the community of Nacaome in south Honduras. She’s been selling snacks and fast-food for 13 years; her food stand is located at home. Her customers are neighbors who come by daily and prefer her because of her kindness, good service, variety of snacks and good environment. Seydi is noted for being an enterprising woman who very much wants to get ahead.

She’s asking for a 15,000 Lempira loan to buy bananas, vegetables, chicken and plantain. With support from this loan she intends to meet her business’ financing need while improving her income in the same way. Her dream is to improve the business still more and to own a house.
