Nelly Sohamy's story

Nelly, a 21-year-old young woman, lives with her husband in the house of a relative. She has no dependent children. She has made a living for two years in the business selling clothing in the neighborhoods and developments of San Lorenzo. Her customers prefer her for her good treatment and good prices. She lives in the community of San Lorenzo in the south of Honduras.

Nelly's requesting the loan to buy new clothing: blouses, skirts, children's clothing, pants, underpants, dresses, sweaters, socks, and sandals. With the support of the loan she'll invest more in her business. She wants to get good profits, which she'll use to continue investing in her business so she can improve her quality of life somewhat.

Nelly's dream is to have her own house.
