A loan of $425 helped to buy hammocks made from silk, thread, cord, pita fibers, rope, etc., for her business.


Nelis Nohemy's story

Nelis is 35 years old. She lives with her husband in her house in a neighborhood of San Lorenzo in the southern part of Honduras. For 10 years she has been selling silk hammocks, thread hammocks, ropes, cords, pita fibers, pita fiber hammocks, etc. Nelis's business is located on the edge of the Panamerican highway. Her customers are her neighbors, friends and people who are traveling in the area who are visiting from elsewhere. Nelis is asking for the loan to buy more hammocks made from silk, thread, cord, pita fiber, rope, etc., so she can have a wider variety of products to offer all of her customers. She wants to buy wholesale for the Holy Week season because that is when her sales are the highest. Nelis' dream is to expand her business and fortify it. San Lorenzo, Honduras - February, 2013.
