Nimia Elemena's story

Nimia is 50 years old, married, and has two children. She lives in a suburban neighborhood of San Pedro Sula with her husband and one of her children.


Doña Nimia has owned her convenience store for 10 years. She sells basic household products such as dairy goods, meats, vegetables, bread, snack foods, fruit, canned goods, cleaning supplies, cosmetics, candy, soft drinks, eggs, lard, basic grains, and other items. Nimia started this business after she left her job at a private company and it has done very well. She has an established clientele.


Nimia is requesting a loan of 20,000 HNL so that she can restock her business with more products such as dairy goods, meats, soft drinks, bread, groceries, canned goods, cleaning supplies, and school supplies.
