Magdalena De Jesus's story

Young Magdalena is a very responsible, honest, hardworking person. She’s 28-years-old and a single mother; she lives with her two children in a community in Choluteca in south Honduras. Her business is a general store. She needs a loan to buy soft-drinks, snacks, beans, flour, bread, rice, sugar, coffee, milk, cookies, eggs, juice, water, etc. She hopes to use the loan to have more products to offer and fill orders she gets daily from her customers. With income earned, Magdalena hopes to improve her economic situation a bit and be able to help her family. In future, she hopes her business will grow and she dreams with seeing her children graduate and become upstanding citizens with better life opportunities.
