Cecilia's story

Cecilia, 43, is married and has two dependent children aged 20 and 21. She lives in San Lorenzo, south of Honduras and has her own home. For 15 years she has sold snacks, bread and meals - her customers are her friends and neighbours.

Cecilia is a hard-working woman with a strong desire to succeed.

Cecilia is requesting the loan to buy cement, sand, gravel and bricks to finish the two rooms she is building and the other part of the money is to invest in her business to buy potatoes, onion, green chillies, coriander, flour and curd, which are the raw materials used to make her snacks.

With the help of this loan, Cecilia will try to improve her income and slightly improve her quality of life. Her dream is to improve her business.
