Mirna Yecenia's story

Mirna is 31 years old, she is married and has 3 children. She lives in a community of the Santa Cruz de Yojoa municipality.

The economic activity that generates an income for her family is a small grocery store where she sells staple goods (rice, beans, milk products, lunch meats, wheat and corn flours, eggs, salt, bread, drinks and personal hygiene products). She has had the chance to invest in three loans which have helped her to keep her business active.

Currently she is applying for the fourth cycle of a L.15,000.00 loan, which she will invest in the purchase of edible goods such as basic grains, sugar, lard, drinks, churros, bread, vegetables, etc. in order to stock her grocery store. Her goal is to offer a greater variety of products to her clients, increase her business and help with the studies on her children.
