Bertha Luz's story

Doña Bertha is 56 years old and married. She and her husband live in a neighborhood in the city of Choloma, Cortes.


Eight years ago, Doña Bertha and her husband decided to establish their own grocery business. She attends to the customers every day and offers basic household products such as beans, rice, cornmeal, lard, flour, meat, bread, sausages, and other items in order to maintain the business. Her profits are reinvested into her inventory by purchasing those products that are in great demand.


Doña Bertha has maintained a good credit record. She is now requesting another loan in the amount of 21,000 HNL so that she can buy grocery products, basic grains, cleaning products, soft drinks, and other items. With this investment, she plans to improve the quality of her service and offer a variety of products to her customers. Her goal for her business is to continue growing each day.
