A loan of $775 helped to buy groceries for her business.

Felix Cantalicia's story

Félix lives in the city of Tegucigalpa with her husband and her three children, who are students. She has been making a living for a year selling rice, beans, sugar, eggs, lard, corn, oil, sauces, and other groceries.

Félix's business is located in one of the city markets where thousands of people pass by, so she has regular customers. She begins at 6 a.m. and works until 6 p.m., from Monday through Sunday. Her customers visit her daily because of her good service and the quality of her products.

Félix is requesting a loan for 15,000.00 lempiras [HNL] to invest in buying milk, cheese, rice, sugar, beans, bread, lard, sauces, pasta, coffee, chips, beverages, and fruit juice to stock her business.

Félix's dream is that her business will grow and she'll have a lot of customers.
