A loan of $1,000 helped to stock her store.


Pamela Isabel's story

Pamela, 21, is single and lives with her parents and siblings in the town of Santa Cruz de Yojoa.

Previously she spent her time studying. A year and a half ago she started her own business, a grocery store where she sells products from the family shopping basket: rice, beans, dairy products, canned goods, bread, chips, condiments, soda, soap, detergent, etc.

The loan she has requested is to stock her store. With the 20,000 lempiras [HNL] she's going to buy meat, basic grains, sugar, shortening, dairy products, canned goods, and other staples.

She plans to keep her business stocked to earn an income and continue attending school.
