Karla's story

Young Karla is 24 years old and lives in her house which is located in a colony in Nacaome, Valle, in the south region of Honduras. For the past five years Karla has been making a living in the sale of food products such as rice, beans, butter, eggs, chicken, spaghetti, sauces, basic grains and others. Her business is located in her house, where all her clients visit her. She sells from Monday to Sunday and is a very enterprising woman who is eager to work. Karla is requesting a loan to buy more products for her store, such as butter, beans, sugar, rice, coffee, bread, toilet paper, milk and others, since her clientele has increased and she needs to have a wider variety of products to sell and make a higher profit. Karla's dream is to expand her business.
