Mercedes's story

Mercedes, 50, is a single mother of four children living in a village in the municipality of Nueva Frontera, Santa Bárbara. She’s had her own grocery store business for nine years; she sells family staples like basic grains, sugar, milk, canned goods, soft-drinks, packaged snacks, flour, lard, etc. She’s decided to request this 22,000 Lempira loan to stock up and improve her inventory in order to have a wider variety of products available for her customers. Her goal is to turn her grocery store into a min supermarket and send her son to study in a university.
