Maria Del Carmen's story

María del Carmen, 48, is a single mother of three children. She lives in the suburbs of San Pedro Sula. María has had her own business for ten years, selling all kinds of foods such as meals, fried chicken with fries, etc. She works at home, on demand, and she offers home delivery.

María has been a client of the institution for several years. This loan will be part of the 26th cycle. She is requesting 10,000 Lempiras [HNL] to buy supplies. Her plan is to increase her sales, and thus her income, by offering new recipes. This will help her to pay for her son’s studies.
