G.s Santa Martha 1 Group's story

María is an honest, responsible, and hardworking person. She lives with her Terri children and four grandchildren in a community in Choluteca, in the south of Honduras.

María's business is buying and selling chickens. She needs the loan to buy chickens. She hopes that with this investment her sales will increase, since she'll have more merchandise (chickens) to offer to the clients who come, so that she'll be able to meet her needs.

María, like the other group members, hopes her quality of life will improve a bit with this investment.

María dreams that within a few years her business will be bigger so that she can continue supporting her children so that can become professionals with better opportunities.
