A loan of $225 helped to buy corn, firewood, and lime for her business.


Gabriela's story

Gabriela is a young 22-year-old woman. She is very responsible, honest, and hardworking. She lives with her husband and one daughter in a community in the south of Honduras.

Gabriela has a business selling tortillas and she needs a loan to buy corn, firewood, and lime. With the loan, she hopes to have more product to offer in order to cover the daily orders she received from her customers. Gabriela wants to improve her and her family's financial situation little by little with the income she makes.

In the future, she hopes her business will grow thanks to the investment she has made in it and she dreams that she will see her daughter graduate and become a good person with better opportunities in life.
