Linda Rosa's story

Linda is 54 years old and married. She does not have any dependent children. For ten years now she has been running a business selling clothing, footwear and hammocks. She also slaughters pigs. Linda makes her sales as an itinerant vendor and lives in the community of San Lorenzo, in the south of Honduras. Linda is requesting a loan to buy shirts, blouses, pants (trousers), underpants, dresses, skirts, sandals and shoes. She will also buy pigs for her second business. She has a lot of advance orders for this Christmas season. Linda has orders for tamales and clothing which is why she is requesting this loan to invest in her business. With the profits she makes from her sales, she would like to be able to continue working and improving her business. Linda's dream is to continue working so that she can improve her home.
