Maria Del Carmen's story

María del Carmen is 61 and married. She lives with her husband, has no children who depend on her, and lives in the community of San Lorenzo, a valley in southern Honduras. She has her own house and for five years has been selling new clothing, fruit drinks, chips and frozen treats.

María works from her home and also door to door. Her customers are friends, and people who know her and pass by her home. Maria is a hard-working woman with the desire to succeed.

She is requesting a loan to buy fruit drinks, chips, bread, bottled water, blackberry drink, milk, etc. She is very happy to continue working with Prisma. With the income she gets from her sales, Maria hopes she will improve her well-being as she has several projects for this year. One of her dreams is to improve her business.
