Delmy's story

Delmy is 34 years old and lives in a village in the municipality of Omoa, in the department of Cortes. She is in a civil union with her partner, with whom she has three children, whereof the two older ones go to school. Delmy has been running her own business for more than three years, selling foodstuffs, knick-knacks, and candy. Nowadays her business is better stocked, like a corner store, and she offers basic grains, soft drinks, juices, chips, sausages, school supplies, knick-knacks, etc.

This is her fourth loan and she will use the 18,000 lempiras to buy basic grains, meats, sausages, soft drinks, and other groceries to have in stock. Her plan is to grow with her business and improve it every day, so that she can offer her children a better quality of life.
