Matilde De Jesus's story

Matilde is an honest, responsible and hardworking person who is 56 years old. She lives with her 4 children in a neighborhood of Choluteca, in southern Honduras.

Matilde has a dressmaking business, and she needs a loan to buy fabric, thread, buttons, pins, and needles. With this loan, she hopes that her sales will increase, because with fresh capital she will be able to offer more merchandise to her customers.

Matilde hopes to be able to pay for her necessities, and that her living conditions will improve a bit with this investment.

Matilde expects that in a year, her business will be bigger and will be known throughout the area. Her dream is to continue working, and in this way support her children in finishing their education so that they will become people of means.
