A loan of $775 helped to stock her store.


Petronila's story

Petronila is a very responsible and honest person who lives in a southern Honduras community, along with her husband and grandson. She sells groceries and has for 15 years. Petronila is very well known and visited by the residents of the community. She needs this loan so she can buy more products such as corn, beans, rice, cooking oil, lard, bread, coffee, soft drinks, cheese, eggs, bathroom tissue, cookies, churros, etc. to stock her store.

Petronila expects her sales to increase once she has the necessary supplies to meet her customer demand. With this she can increase her income and improve her quality of life a bit.

Petronila expects this business to grow and become a mini market that will allow her to continue supporting her family and allow her grandson to continue his studies so that he will become a person of means with better opportunities in life.
