Maria Del Carmen's story

Sra. Carmen is 60 years old and married. All of her children are independent. She has had a business selling dairy goods and new clothing for six years. She lives in the city of San Lorenzo in southern Honduras. She sells her wares as a street vendor in the neighborhoods and suburbs. She owns her home. Doña Carmen is requesting a loan to purchase skirts, pants, dresses, shirts, blouses, sweaters and socks. She wants to invest a little in her business so that she can earn more income because clothing sells well during this season. She hopes her business expands in the future so that she will have more profits and be able to make improvements on her home. San Lorenzo, Honduras - November, 2012.
