Maria Cristina's story

María, 49, is married and has three children. She lives with her family in a village belonging to the municipality of Esparta, Atlántida. María has her own source of income. She opened a grocery store six years ago where she sells basic family staple items like beans, rice, coffee, bread, lard, flour, sugar, pasta, condiments, oil, shortening, salt, vegetables and other grocery items. She’s invested several loans in her store to keep it stocked. The current loan is her 7th and it’s for 15,000 Lempiras she’ll use to buy basic food items to stock the store with. Her goal is to make the business grow to earn higher profits for her personal and family well-being.
