A loan of $1,275 helped a member to buy corn, firewood, and lime.

G.s Telmo Ruiz N#2 Group's story

Delcia is an honest, responsible, and very hardworking person. She lives with her husband and child in a town in Choluteca, in the south of Honduras. Her business is making and selling tortillas, which she sells in her community and in the city market.

She's requesting the loan to buy ingredients such as corn, lime, and firewood, which she needs to make her product.

Delcia hopes her business will grow and be the best known in the area so she can help her child finish studying and become a good person with better opportunities in life.

Delcia and her friends in the group hope to use the loan to buy the supplies they need to be able to make their products so their sales increase and they make more income to improve their quality of life and that of their families.

María, 58, has sold tortillas for twelve years. Ángela, 57, has sold tortillas for eight years. Clairy, 21, has sold tortillas for five years. Julia, 24, has sold tortillas for six years.
