Cinthia Mabel's story

Cinthia is a 22 year old young woman. She lives with her son in her house, which is in the San Lorenzo community in the southern area of Honduras. For four years she has been selling clothes for adults and children, underwear, athletic shorts, bras, bloomers, and shirts, etc. Her business is located at her house. She also goes out to sell in neighboring communities. Her customers are her neighbors and friends, and they visit her every day.

Cinthia is requesting the loan to buy shirts, pants, dresses, skirts, blouses, bras, bloomers, socks, and shorts. She will do this in order to have more products to offer all of her customers.

Cinthia wants to buy wholesale for the school season because that is when she sells a lot. This way she will be able to get more income from her business.

Cinthia’s dream is to set up a very strong business and to have more customers in order to increase her income.
