Sulma Araceli's story

Sulma, 48, is the single mother of three children. She lives in a suburb of San Pedro Sula. She has always been in business and also takes in laundry. A year ago, she decided to open a small store in her house, selling daily consumption items such as beverages, churros, flour, basic grains, sugar, salt, pills, margarine, soap, and toilet paper. She opened the business with her savings, and it has been a success.

She decided to apply for a loan of 8,000 lempiras to stock her business with items like juice, batteries, meat, beverages, beans, and corn. Her goal is to solidify her business, to buy some freezers so that she can sell meat, and to help her daughter with her education fees.
