A loan helped to buy pots to make food and disposable plates to sell the food.


Gloria Ester's story

Gloria is 39 years old, has two children, and lives with her husband in the town of San Pedro Sula. Previously she made her living selling clothes, and for 5 years she has been selling food, such as baleadas [flour tortillas filled with mashed fried beans], chicken tacos, pastries filled with beef, etc. She has her business in a rented space next to her house.
The loan that she has requested is for 5,000 lempiras, and she will use it to buy pots and disposable plates to sell her food. This loan will help her to increase her sales, since sometimes she does not have enough utensils to make the food. Her goal is to grow the business over time, since her business retail space is very small.
