A loan of $750 helped to buy cows and pigs for her business.


Mariana's story

Mariana is a very hardworking and responsible person. She lives in a community in southern Honduras with her husband and their 3 children. For the past 25 years, she has made a living by selling meat in her community.

Mariana needs the loan to buy more cows and pigs to butcher so that she can continue to develop her business. She hopes that the loan will help her a lot since she does not currently have the cows and pigs that she needs to continue with her business. She also hopes that her sales will increase, providing her with more income that will help her improve her and her family's quality of life.

Mariana hopes to grow her business and continue supporting her family so that her children can continue studying and can become good people with better opportunities in life.
