Belarmina's story

Belarmina is 31 years old, married with two children and lives in a neighbourhood in the municipality of Choloma, Cortes. Two years ago she decided to sell merchandise such as clothing, plastic products, toys, lotions, creams, sandals, and other low-cost consumer goods. She sells the items in the streets and from her home. Belarmina is now seeking a loan of 11,000 lempiras to buy stock such as waterwings, creams, and paddling pools to sell during the current summer season. Her plan is to continue expanding her business and rent fixed premises from which to run it.
