G.s Marcelino Group's story

Wendy is a very hardworking and responsible young woman. She lives in a community in southern Honduras with her 2 children and her husband. Her business is a small store she has had for several years. It is visited by and well known to the residents of the neighborhood.

Wendy needs the loan to buy more products, such as lard, rice, beans, sugar, beverages, bread, churros, and more. She needs them to fill the demand of her neighbors. With the loan, she hopes that sales increase and thanks to this she will be able to improve her family's quality of life with the increase in income in the home.

Wendy, like the other members of the group, hopes to make her business grow in the short term and this way keep supporting her family, and for her children to stay in schools so they can have better opportunities in life.

Yesenia's business has been selling clothes for 5 years.
Diana's business has been selling tortillas for 3 years.
