Gina Mabel's story

Gina, 36, is a single mother of two children; she lives in a suburban neighborhood in San Pedro Sula. A year ago she decided to start her own business at home so she could be with her children. Her business is a grocery store where she sells basic staple items like basic grains, lard, sugar, cleaning supplies, bread, eggs, salt, etc.

She’s requesting a 7,000 Lempira loan to stock up on more food items like basic grains, bread, salt, sugar and eggs for her grocery store. Her goal is to make the business grow to improve her economy and help her family.
