Doña Dominga is 54 years old and a single mother with three children. She lives in a neighborhood in the city of San Pedro Sula.

Doña Dominga is a hardworking woman. For the past two years, she has managed a business of selling clothes, shoes, and purses. She also earns extra income by selling food, such as “baleadas” (the Honduran version of a burrito) and fried chicken with plantains. Dominga started her business with her own funds so that she could generate needed income for her family.

She is requesting a loan of 7,000 HNL so that she can restock her business. Dominga will buy sandals and clothing, such as shorts and T-shirts, so that she can take advantage of the summer season. With this investment, she will increase her sales and improve her income. Her goal is to help her son finish his studies since she does not receive assistance from the child’s father.
