Juana's story

Juana is a hard-working person. She lives in Choluteca, a community in south Honduras, with her husband and two children. Juana has been selling seafood for 10 years. She sells it in her community to people and businesses who then distribute the product in hamlets near her community. Juana is asking for a loan to purchase more products such as slugs, breams, sea bass, etc, which she needs to cover the orders from her customers. She hopes the loan will help her greatly because she doesn't have the products needed to satisfy her customers' demands. Juana hopes to increase her sales in order to generate more income that will allow her improve her quality of life and that of her family. She wants to keep supporting her children in their studies so they can have more opportunities in life.
