A loan of $650 helped to buy cows..


Maricela De Jesus's story

Maricela is a very good person. She is honest, responsible, hard-working, and lives with her six children in a very small village in southern Honduras. Her business is buying and selling livestock.

Maricela needs the loan to buy cows and pigs. With the loan, she hopes that her sales will grow since she can provide fresh product to her clients.

With this investment, Maricela hopes to cover her necessities, She also hopes that her life situation and that of her family will improve with this investment. Maricela dreams that in two years, her business will be larger and better-known in her small village, and that she will be able to continue to support her children in becoming good people.
