Noemy Esperanza's story

Noemí is 55 years old, single and has two children who depend on her. She has her own home in the community of San Lorenzo in southern Honduras. Noemí has made a living for a number of years making and selling tacos, enchiladas, lunches, dinners, soft drinks and other items. Her customers prefer her thanks to the quality of her food and her good customer service. Noemí is an enterprising woman with a desire to make headway. She is requesting the loan to purchase meats, potatoes, cabbage, tomatoes, cheese, water, soft drinks, butter, bananas, beans, rice and other items, as well as to build a pathway from the street to the front of her home and to provide her customers with more comfort in her restaurant. Noemí's dream is for her children to graduate from college and have jobs.
