Maryluz's story

Maryluz, 24, is single living with her parents in a village that belongs to the municipality of San Luis, Comayagua. She’s very enterprising. While she was studying she’d bake bread to sell to pay for her schooling. She currently manages a grocery store she inherited from her parents. The store has been in operation for 14 years and has a good clientele. Maryluz wants the business to continue and to grow more so that it will generate the income necessary to help her parents and to have a good quality of life. With the 21,000 Lempira loan she’s requested, she will stock up on food items like basic grains, sugar, eggs, candy, bread, lard, flour, condiments and other food items as well as with cleaning supplies. With this investment she will increase her clientele and her income. She wants to save her profits to reinvest in the business and make it grow.
