Lidia Yesenia's story

Lidia is a 38-year old married woman who has two dependent children. She lives in the community of San Lorenzo, located in the South of Honduras, has her own house and makes a living from selling food and candy, a business that she has had for four years now. Her clients are friends and neighbors that visit her store, but she also delivers food to cooperatives and banks in the area. She is a hard-working woman who wants to surpass herself.

Doña Lidia is requesting a loan to buy potatoes, "pataste" (a zucchini-like vegetable), yucca, bananas, salt, onions, green chili, meat, etc., which are the raw materials she uses to make her dishes and candy. She also wants to buy dry fish to make fish soups, something that her clients are asking for, especially during Easter Week. Thanks to this loan, she expects to cover her financial needs and to reach her dream of having a good meals business. She is very happy to continue to work with Prisma.
