Gs Marcelino I Group's story

Wendy is an honest, responsible, and working person who lives with her four children in the community of Choluteca, in the southern Honduras. Her business is a food market.

Wendy needs this loan to purchase coffee, sugar, bread, meat, corn, beans, butter, cookies, churros, beverages, salsas, pastas, salt, rice, etc. With this loan, she hopes to improve her sales because she will have more products to offer her customers who visit her.

Wendy hopes to meet her needs and, at the same time, she wants her lifestyle and that of her family to improve a little bit with the investment.

In a few years, Wendy hopes that her business will be bigger and more well known in the area and that she will be able to continue supporting her children as they become people of means with better opportunities.

Maria's business has been selling American clothes for 10 years.

Eufemia's business has been making tortillas and bread for more than 12 years.
