Maria Elena's story

María, 32, is married with three children; they live in a suburban neighborhood in San Pedro Sula. She’s had a grocery store for a year where she sells basic staple items like groceries, meats, vegetables, soft-drinks, basic grains, bread and others like tamales. This business is the only one in the area where she lives so she’s acquiring a good clientele. The loan she’s requested is for 10,000 Lempiras that she’ll use to buy more food items like vegetables, basic grains, lard, soft-drinks, bread and others, to sell. Her goal is to make the business grow to help with her children’s schooling.
