Maria Francisca's story

Señora María, age 34, lives in her home in a neighbourhood of San Lorenzo, in the southern zone of Honduras. For almost 15 years she has sold pants, dresses, skirts, blouses, children's clothing, and other items. Her clients are her friends and neighbours whom she visits daily in areas near to her community. She goes to drop off her merchandise. María is a very hard-working woman with a desire to get ahead. She is requesting a loan for the purchase of more merchandise such as skirts, dresses, blouses, shirts, swim trunks, etc. Her customers are requesting more merchandise. With the support of this loan, Maria plans to fill her financial needs. Her dream is to buy a car so that she can stock her business even more. San Lorenzo, Honduras - June 2013.
