A loan of $325 helped to buy seafood.


Martha De Jesus's story

Martha is a very responsible and hardworking woman who lives with her two children in a southern Honduras community. She has been buying and selling seafood for ten years.

Martha goes out on foot to sell in her own and the nearby communities. She needs this loan in order to buy slugs, shrimp, dried fish, curvina, pancha, wicho, etc. She needs these products to satisfy her daily customer demand.

Martha hopes that this investment will satisfy her customers’ needs and that her sales will increase and improve her family’s quality of life.

Martha hopes that her business becomes one of the largest and best known in the community. She also hopes to continue supporting her children so that they can have better opportunities in life.
