A loan of $525 helped to buy merchandise to stock her food market.


Sandra Carolina's story

Sandra, 28, is married and has two children; she lives with her family in San Pedro Sula, Cortes. Sandra has a food stall in one of the city markets. For the last year she’s been selling ‘rosquillas’ and ‘tustacas’ [traditional cookies], turnovers, candy and tablets. She’s always been a merchant. She’s decided to get a 10,000 Lempira loan to buy more products to stock the business. Her dream is that the business grows to be able to buy her own house and a vehicle for the business.
