G.s El Cerro#2 Group's story

Brenda is a very responsible and hard-working woman who lives in a community in the south of Honduras together with her husband and their two children. Her business is selling new clothing and she has been in this line of work for 10 years.

Brenda sells her products daily in her community and in other nearby villages. She needs this loan to buy more products such as pants (trousers), shirts, skirts, dresses, shorts, blouses, t-shirts, etc. which she needs to meet the demand that she currently has. Brenda and her fellow group members hope that this loan will enable them to buy all the products they need to fill their customers' orders and that their sales increase so that they can improve their families' quality of life a little.

Brenda hopes to grow her business over the next few years so that she can continue supporting her family and so that her children can stay in school. She would like her children to become upstanding citizens with better opportunities in life.
