Evangelista's story

39-year old Evangelista is married and has four children. She lives in a small village in the municipality of La Masica, Atlántida. She has had her own business for four years selling cosmetics, shampoo, hair treatments, lotions, deodorants, creams etc. By investing money from several loans, Evangelista has created a stable business.

She is now seeking a sixth loan of 15,000 lempiras to buy stock such as cosmetics, shampoo, lotions, creams, and deodorants--items sought by her customers. Her goals are to stock a variety of products, and increase sales and earnings. Evangelista’s plan is for the business to prosper so that her children lack for nothing.
