Sandra Yamileth's story

Sandra’s 42-years-old, married and has a son. She lives in a suburban neighborhood in San Pedro Sula. She started her own grocery store business where she sells basic grains, dairy products, canned goods, meats, eggs, pasta, cured meats, pills, lard, sugar and other grocery items. She’s always been a merchant; she used to sell used clothes and ten years ago decided to go into grocery sales and has done well to date.

She’s currently decided to request a 22,000 Lempira loan to buy more food items to stock her store and will use part of the loan to build an annex onto her house to run the business in. She will buy supplies like cement and concrete blocks and her husband will build it. In this way she’ll be able to provide better customer service. Her goal is to keep her store well-stocked to increase sales and income.
