A loan of $525 helped to buy basic grains, soda, candy, sugar, lard, and other groceries to stock up her grocery store.


Lisida Marilu's story

Lisida is 23 and a single mother with one son. She lives with her mother and three sisters in a suburb belonging to the city of Choloma, Cortes. Lisida has had a grocery store for four years. She sells food products such as lard, beans, flour, rice, sugar and grocery products.

She has worked at her mother's side since she was very small and she grew up with the belief that having her own business would allow her to generate her own income.

She is requesting a second loan of 10,000 lempiras to invest in the purchase of food products such as rice, beans, lard, sugar, soda, candy and other groceries, to stock up her business and be able to earn more income.

Her goal is to increase her income further in order to put up another small store and improve her family life.
