G.s San Francisco Group's story

María, 60, is married, has no children that depend on her, and lives in the community of San Lorenzo in the south of Honduras. She has her own house and has been making a living selling new and used clothing for the last four years. She makes her sales on foot.

Maria and Yesmin form the group San Francisco

María is a hard-working woman who wants to get her family ahead. She does everything, selling tortillas, clothing, candy, and also working in houses. She is the leader of the group and is a working example for the others.

María is requesting the loan for the purchase of new clothes such as skirts, pants, dresses, blouses, shirts and swimwear. She wishes to take advantage of the summer season.

María, just like her fellow group member, is very happy to continue working with Prisma and her wish is that her business will improve.

Maria's dream is to improve her house and Yesmin dreams that her business will become larger. Yesmin has made a living selling candy for the last three years.
