A loan of $775 helped a member to buy corn, lime, and firewood for her business.

G.s Bo.suyapa Group's story

Vilma is a very determined woman who lives in a community in the south of Honduras with her son. For 15 years she has had a business selling tortillas, which is patronized daily by the neighbors in the community.

Vilma needs the loan to buy more raw materials such as corn, lime, and firewood that are necessary in order to make her product. With the loan, she hopes that her sales will increase when she has the raw material to make her product, and with this she will earn more income.

Vilma dreams that in a few years her business will be bigger and more recognized in her community, and that thanks to this she will continue supporting her sons so that they will finish their studies and become well-off people with better opportunities in life.

Along with her fellow members, Vilma hopes her lifestyle and that of her family will improve a little with the investment made in their businesses.

Dilcia is 32, and for 5 years she has had a business selling tortillas.

Julio is 39, and for 15 years he has had a business selling new clothing and more.
