Maria De Jesus's story

Doña María is 53 years old and a single mother. She has seven children and lives with the two youngest ones in Santa Cruz de Yojoa.

Doña María started earning her own income by selling tamales. Three years ago, she began buying clothing, shoes, purses, and other types of merchandise to sell. Her sales are conducted at her house since her customers visit with her there. María has obtained several loans for her business and is currently in her sixth loan cycle.

This loan is in the amount of 20,000 HNL and will be invested in an inventory of blouses, sandals, and purses. This will enable her to offer more products to her customers, increase her sales, and improve her financial standing. Her plans include living better with her family, providing for her children’s education, and improving her business.
