A loan of $1,050 helped to buy merchandise.

Maria Ercilia's story

Maria is 52 years old and lives with her husband and son in a home located in the San Lorenzo neighborhood in southern Honduras. She has been selling clothing such as pants, dresses, blouses, skirts, and children’s clothing among other things for 20 years.

Maria’s customers are her friends and neighbors who visit her stall in the San Lorenzo market every day.

Maris is asking for a loan so she can buy more merchandise such as blouses, dresses, skirts, shirts, undergarments, socks, etc., now that her number of customers has increased and they are asking for more products.

Maria wants to obtain better earnings that will allow her to supplement her needs a bit, and at the same time be able to improve the quality of life for her family.

Maria’s dream is to be able to open a clothing store in the future.
