G.s Las Brisas Group's story

Ana is a very hard-working person who lives in a community in the south of Honduras together with her two children. She has been running a convenience store business for 8 years.

Ana is very well known and her store is very popular with her neighbors and other people who pass by. She needs this loan to buy more products such as corn, rice, butter, beans, churros (fritters), soft drinks, sugar, bread, coffee, etc. so that she can further stock her business.

Ana and her fellow group members believe that this loan will be very useful as it will enable them to buy the products they need to meet their customers' needs. They also believe that it will help them to increase their sales so that they can improve their families' lifestyles a little.

Ana's dream is to continue supporting her family so that her children can stay in school and enjoy better opportunities in life.

Alejandro is a young man of 22. He has been running a convenience store for 3 years.

Gloria is 43 years old and she has been running a business selling used clothing for 15 years.
