Blanca Noemy's story

Blanca, age 37, is married and has a child. She lives with her husband and child in the Villanueva municipality in Cortes. Three years ago she established her own business from which she gets income for her household.

She sells basic needs products like rice, beans, sugar, coffee, salt, shortening, flour, eggs, churros, soft drinks, personal care products, canned goods, and pastas, etc.

She has decided to request a loan for 28,000 lempiras to stock up on food products like basic grains, flour, sugar, churros, and soft drinks, etc. This investment will help her to increase sales and her income. This is because she has seen greater customer demand.

Her plan is to make her business grow in order be able to give her child a good education.
