Vilma Doris's story

Señora Vilma is a 34-year-old old single mother. She lives with her mother in her home. She has three children who depend on her. She lives in the Nacaome community in southern Honduras.
For the past 12 years, Vilma has made her living with her business of selling tamales, bread, cheese, butter, candy, etc. She is a single woman who is struggling to help her children get ahead. It is for this reason that she gets up very early to prepare her goods to sell in the different places she visits.
Vilma is a very hardworking woman who wants to get ahead with the support of this loan which will be used to buy more products like meat, leaves, flour, eggs, milk, sugar, bread, etc. to increase her supply of her cheeses, tamales, vegetables, bread, etc. With the profits, she plans to continue supporting her children in school.
Vilma is very happy to continue working with Prisma, her dream is to improve her business.
