Fatima Lourdes's story

Fatima is 32 years old and lives with her three children in their house in one of the communities of San Lorenzo, in the south of Honduras. She has been selling new and used clothes, beauty products, and lotion sets for 10 years. Fatima runs her business from home and her customers are her neighbors and friends who come by daily. She is requesting a loan to buy shirts, dresses, skirts, pants, blouses, sweaters, sandals, accessories, lotions, and perfumes. Fatima wants to buy in bulk so that she has stock for the upcoming season in which there is high demand for the products she sells. In this way, she will be able to earn more money and not have to ask for loans for her business, and she will also improve the quality of her and her family's life. Fatima's dream is to buy her own car.
