Venancia's story

Venancia, age 50, does not have dependent children. She lives with her husband in her own house. The house is located in the San Lorenzo community in southern Honduras. She has been selling groceries and soft drinks for three years. Venancia’s customers are students, people who visit her business daily, relatives, and friends. She is a hard-working woman with the desire to get her family ahead. Venancia is requesting the loan to buy groceries like soft drinks, churros, cookies, eggs, milk, bread, shortening, flour, beans, sugar, coffee, and rice, etc. With the support of the loan she intends to improve her income and her business. This is because she will have more products to offer her customers. Venancia’s dream is to improve her business. San Lorenzo, Honduras - February, 2013.
