G.s Santos Group's story

Señora Santos is 48-years old, is married and lives with her husband. Their home is located in a community of San Lorenzo, in the south of Honduras. She has made her living for the last ten years selling fresh cheese and sweets to the friends and neighbors who stop by each day. Doña Santos is an enterprising woman who wants for herself and her family to get ahead. She does not have dependent children. She is the leader of the communal bank because the other members trust her to be the one in charge of their payments and their renewals. Doña Santos is requesting the loan in order to purchase milk, salt, potatoes, "pataste" (a local vegetable), bananas, onions, chiles, beets, lettuce, cabbage etc. to keep making fresh cheese and sweets. She is very happy for the support that Prisma has given to her business. Doña Santos hopes to continue growing her business and also to improve her house. Just like the other members of the communal bank, they are all working to get ahead by selling their products. Doña Virginia makes her living making and selling tortillas. Doña María makes her living selling clothing.
