Jovita's story

Jovita is 36 years old, married and has two children. She lives in a village in the municipality of Azacualpa, Santa Barbara. She has always worked as a merchant. As of three years ago, she started selling clothes such as blouses, shirts, socks and underwear for ladies and gentlemen. She makes her sales as a mobile street vendor in her community and nearby. She is requesting a loan of 15,000 Lempiras to buy more goods to offer to her customers. She will buy various clothes for both men and women, as well as underwear. Her dream is to increase sales and profits to give her family a better quality of life and also to build a permanent stand to stabilize her business.
