A loan of $225 helped to buy merchandise for her business.


Dania Maria's story

Dania, 29, is a very responsible, honest, and hardworking young woman. She lives with her husband and daughter in a community in Choluteca, in the south of Honduras.

Dania has a grocery store business and needs the loan to buy soda, meat, corn, milk, beans, sugar, rice, coffee, toilet paper, cookies, "churros" [fried dough], and fruit juice. With the loan she hopes to have more merchandise to sell to her customers and cover the requests she gets every day and more frequently in this Christmas season.

With the income Dania hopes to improve somewhat the financial situation in her household. In the future she wants for her business to be a mini-market and have a greater variety of products to sell.

Dania dreams of seeing her daughter graduate and become a good person with principles and values.
