Blanca Rosa's story

Blanca is 50 years old, married and lives with her husband and son in a neighborhood belonging to the city of San Pedro Sula. She has a small corner store where she has sold basic goods for the past ten years, includng sugar, bread, rice, chips, sweets, vegetables, meat, soft drinks, flour, cream and other items.

Blanca has requested three loans with the current one to keep her business active. This loan is for 12,000 Lempiras and will be invested in her store to stock vegetables, red meat and preserved meats so that she can generate greater earnings. She hopes to continue working so that her son will be able to finish his schooling.
