A loan of $425 helped to buy food-making ingredients.

Julia Zulema's story

Julia, 32, is single living with her mother and siblings in a village in Esparta municipality, Atlántida. She set up a space attached to her house six years ago where she runs her food business; she sells breakfasts, fast-food like ‘baleadas’ (flour tortilla filled with beans, cheese, eggs and others) and fried plantain with meat or fried chicken and soft-drinks. She works hard starting very early preparing the food. Her mother helps her serve customers. She’s decided to get an 8,000 Lempira loan to capitalize and buy more necessary ingredients to prepare the meals like breakfasts, baleadas and other fast-food. She wants to keep the business active to provide good customer service and increase sales and profits. Her dream is to make the business grow and to use profits to obtain personal and family well-being.
