A loan of $275 helped to buy fruit, sugar, water, chips, candy and other supplies for her business.


Carmen Yaneth's story

Carmen is 37 years old, a single mother, and has two children with whom she lives in the city of Puerto Cortes. Carmen started her business three years ago, from which she gets the income necessary for her family. It is a small business where she makes and sells natural juices, cold water in a bag, as well as chips and candy.

Her stall is in front of the bus terminal, where there are many passersby traveling from one place to another, which allows her to increase sales.

She is requesting another loan for 5,000 lempiras, so that she can buy products such as fruit, sugar, water, chips, candy and other supplies for her business. She is seeing her business grow, and her goal is to make her business bigger through this investment opportunity and to continue getting good income.
