María De Jesús's story

María, 48, has two children. She’s married and lives with her family in a community in the municipality of Taulabe, Comayagua Department. María’s business is selling snacks and food she makes herself. She sells meat pies, tortillas with string cheese, ‘baleadas’ [thick flour tortillas filled with eggs, beans and other ingredients], soft-drinks, candy, cookies and packaged snacks.

She’s currently asking for a 5,000 Lempira loan to buy soft-drinks, snacks, vegetables, lard, Maseca [corn flour], wheat flour, dairy products and chicken. She hopes to increase sales and improve her income in order to have a better life with her children.
