A loan of $225 helped to buy maize for her business.


Rosa Elvira's story

Rosa is a responsible, hard-working, and honest person. She lives with her husband and her three children in the south of the Honduras. Her business is selling cosmetics and maize.

Rosa needs the loan in order to buy maize. With the loan she hopes that sales in her business will increase by having more products on offer and by attending to her customers better.

Rosa hopes to meet all the needs she has and improve her quality of life a little, as well as that of her family. In a few years she hopes that her business will continue to grow and become one of the biggest and most recognized businesses in the area.

Rosa hopes to continue working to give her children an education so that they will become respectable people with better opportunities in life.
