A loan of $425 helped to buy new clothing to sell.

Maria Valentina's story

Dona María is 48 years old and a single mother with four children. She lives in a suburban section of San Pedro Sula.

For the past five years, María has been selling merchandise such as various types of new clothing, T-shirts, curtains, bedding, and other items that are requested. She sells the merchandise from her home. Her business has remained stable as a result of investing several loans. María is currently requesting her seventh loan, which is in the amount of 8,000 HNL. The money will be used to restock with more clothing so that she can generate more profits. Her short-term goal is to use her earnings to repair the roof of her house.
