Saida Yasmina's story

Sayda is a responsible, hardworking and honest person. She lives with her three daughters in a community in southern Honduras. Her business is on a small square and she sells food. Sayda needs the loan to buy soft drinks, spices, chili peppers, onions, cabbage, lettuce, tomatoes, potatoes, sweets, candies, cookies, churros, chocolates, cigarettes, etc. She hopes that her business sales increase with the loan, as she will have more products to offer the clients that visit her. Sayda hopes to cover the necessities and improve her quality of life and that of her family. In a few years she hopes that her business continues growing and turns into one of the bigger, more well known businesses in the region, and that her daughters are good people with better opportunities in life.
