Nubia Maria's story

Nubia is 52 years old and lives in southern Honduras along with her children and her husband, who supports her in her business. For the last 10 years, she has been selling a variety of products, such as "rosquillas" [donuts], in her community. Her business is strategically located in the city center where there is a lot of foot traffic. This is why she has so many customers. Nubia needs this loan to buy rosquillas, sweets, "espumillas" [meringues], garlic and chamomile tea, among other items, for her business. She hopes to increase her sales because of the loan. By having a wider variety of products, she will be able to satisfy each of her customers' needs. Nubia's future plans include growing her business and making it one of the the best in her community. She also wants to have a better quality of life. Choluteca, Honduras - April, 2013.
