Carina Gabriela's story

Carina, 32, lives in the southern part of Honduras with her children and her husband, who support her in her job. Her business is selling new merchandise, a job she has done for six years in the community where she lives. Carina works as a street vendor in several neighboring towns and hamlets. She distributes her products to a lot of people with whom she has worked for many years. Carina needs the loan to buy pants, shirts, t-shirts, boxers, blouses, bikinis, skirts, children's outfits, shoes, sandals, etc. The desired impact of the loan is to be able to satisfy her customers' needs by having a greater variety of products to counter her demand. Carina's plans for the future are to continue growing in her own business, get a store for new merchandise, and also generate better income for herself so she can improve her quality of life a little.
