Kenia Marisela's story

Kenia is 37 years old and a single mother to three children. She lives in the town of Quimistán in Santa Bárbara. Previously Kenia worked in Maquila but, when she came to be unemployed, she decided to start her own business selling meals and sweets out of her home. She has had the business for more than a year and it has been going well. Kenia offers breakfasts, lunches, dinners, churros, soft drinks, sweets, biscuits and more. She is applying for a loan of 15,000 Lempira in the sixth loan cycle. She will buy supplies such as meats, plantains, beans, flour, butter, soft drinks, churros and more, in order to prepare meals and sweets to sell. Kenia's goal is to expand the business in order to be able to help her children.
