Karen Suyapa's story

Karen, 30, is married and lives with her husband and two children in a house they rent. She has made a living selling groceries for three years. Her business is located in the community of San Lorenzo, in the south of Honduras. She sells everything from the family shopping basket. She's a hardworking and very enterprising woman who wants to get ahead.

Karen's requesting the loan to buy groceries such as basic grains, juice, dairy products, chips, soda, beans, rice, sugar, salt, cookies, bread, and everything from the family shopping basket. With the support of this loan she plans to improve her income, better stock her business, and get better profits, which will help her get ahead with her family and her projects.

Karen's dream is to have her own house.
