Dilsia Rosa's story

Dilsia is a 49-year-old single mother who has four children. She lives in the town of Azacualpa, Santa Bárbara, with one of her children.


Dilsia established her own grocery business four years ago. There she sells corn, beans, lard, snack foods, coffee, sugar, condiments, eggs, vegetables, medicines, soft drinks, chicken, and other items. This business serves as her source of income. Doña Dilsia has maintained an active business by investing several loans.


She is currently requesting her sixth loan in the amount of 10,000 HNL so that she can invest in the purchase of basic food products such as corn, beans, rice, sugar, lard, chicken, snacks, soft drinks, and other grocery items to restock her business. Her objective is to increase her inventory so that she can offer more products to her customers. She also has a goal of converting her business into a supermarket so that she can provide an inheritance for her children.
