A loan of $750 helped to buy plantains, yucca, onion, cabbage, cheese, sauces, tortillas, butter, and more, for her business.


Nilda's story

Young Nilda is 23 years old and is a feisty and responsible person. She lives with her family in a community south of Honduras. She has a business selling sweets in her own and in nearby communities.

Nilda needs a loan in order to buy plantains, yucca, onion, cabbage, cheese, sauces, tortillas, butter, and more, to continue with her business. She hopes this loan will be a great help to her as, thanks to it, she will have all the necessary products to keep on working and meeting her customers' demands.

Nilda hopes that her sales will increase and she will be able to improve her and her family's quality of life. She wants her business to grow in some years so that she can continue to support her family as they achieve their goals and dreams - her siblings do not want to stop studying as they want better opportunities in the future.

Choluteca, Honduras; August 2013.
