A loan of $500 helped to buy cows for her business.

Mirna Lizeth's story

Young Mirna is very enterprising, responsible and hard-working. She lives with her husband and son in a community south of Honduras. She has a business buying and selling cattle - this is her main source of income.

Mirna needs this loan to buy more cattle as she has quite a bit of demand from customers and she wants to meet their needs. Mirna needs this loan - she does not have the necessary capital to buy more merchandise.

Mirna sells the cattle in the outskirts of her community and nearby neighbourhoods. Mirna dreams of her business growing in some years and wants to have the necessary income to be able to have a better quality of living and thus support her husband and son.
