A loan of $500 helped to buy ingredients and soft-drinks for her business.


Kenia Jisela's story

Kenia is a very hardworking, responsible person living in a community in southern Honduras with her two children. Her business is making and selling tortillas and snacks; she’s been in business for five years. Kenia sells her products from home. She needs the loan to buy more raw materials like corn, lime powder, firewood, meat, potatoes, cabbage, disposable plates, condiments, soft-drinks, etc. needed to make her product and to have available for sale.

Kenia hopes that the loan will be of much help to her because she does not have the necessary ingredients to continue making her product on hand. In addition, she hopes this investment will generate an increase in sales so that her income will increase too and her and her family’s standard of living will improve a bit as a result. Kenya hopes to continue supporting her children’s schooling so that they will have better life opportunities.
