Diris Carolina's story

Diris, age 36, lives at her house with her daughter, who is dependent upon her. Her husband lives in the United States. Diris lives a community in San Lorenzo in southern Honduras, and she has her own house. She has been selling new clothes for four years. Her customers are her friends and neighbors.

Diris is a hard-working woman with a great desire to get ahead. She sells her products in an itinerant manner in the neighborhoods and suburbs of San Lorenzo. She goes by taxi when she goes far from her house. This is an example of her work and dedication.

Diris is requesting the loan to buy shirts, skirts, pants, dresses, blouses, and socks. She will also buy electrical wiring and paint because she wants to make an improvement to her house. With the support of this loan Diris intends to improve her house and her business and, therefore, her quality of life. She is very happy to continue working with Prisma.
