Helen Eloisa's story

Helen, 38, is a single mother; she has a son and lives with her son and her grandmother in a neighborhood in San Pedro Sula. Helen used to have a grocery store but 7 months ago decided to start selling fast-food like fried chicken with fried plantain slices, ‘pupusas’ [filled grilled corn cakes], ‘baleadas’ [filled flour tortillas], tacos, etc. This business is also home-based. She will use the 10,000 Lempira loan she’s requested to buy chicken, potatoes, flour, oil, green plantain, condiments, etc. to make the food with the objective of increasing her sales. Her goal is to open a new business and that her son graduates from university.
