Digna Marizol's story

Digna is 30 years old, married, and has a son. She lives in the municipality of La Masica, Atlantida. She has been doing her household chores, but a year ago decided to set up her own general store business to sell basic household necessities such as flour, rice, beans, meats, salt, bread, lard, sugar, hygiene products, toilet paper, eggs, pills, sauces, etc.

With the loan she has applied for of 8,000 lempiras, she will further stock her store. She wants to keep a larger inventory of products such as basic staples, meat, dairy products, sugar and other items to sell and increase her earnings. Her goal is to always have the store to get income so that her son can graduate.
