Laura Patricia's story

Laura is 31, lives with her three children in a village in San Lorenzo, south of Honduras, for four years she has worked selling rice, beans, eggs, spaghetti, chicken, beef, chops, lard and other products. Her business is located in her house, her clients are neighbors and friends that visit her store daily. Laura is requesting a loan to buy more products for her store such as rice, beans, eggs, chicken, beef, salsas, pasta, bread, soda, juices, milk, sugar, cookies, etc. She wants to buy these at wholesale prices to take advantage of the Christmas season, which is the season when she sells the most and this way she will be able to obtain more income for her business. Laura’s dream is to expand her business and continue to work to get her children ahead. San Lorenzo, Honduras – November 2012.
