Dilcia Ismenia's story

Dilcia is 34 years old, married, and has one child. She lives with her family in the city of Choloma, Cortes.


Six years ago, Dilcia started her own business of selling crèmes, lotions, clothing, and cooking utensils. Her sales are conducted as a street vendor and by taking orders. The business has been a great help financially and the loans have been invested well and put to good use.


Dilcia is a very responsible person. She is requesting her ninth loan in the amount of 7,000 HNL so that she can buy more merchandise to sell and fulfill some of her pending orders. Dilcia will acquire cosmetics, lotions, and clothing in order to increase her inventory and have more variety to sell. Her goal is to keep working so that she can provide her daughter the help that she needs.
