A loan of $1,250 helped purchase stock for the grocery store such as basic grains, lard, medicine, drinks, flour, sugar, etc.


Maria Odilia's story

María is 48 and married with two children. She lives in the Tela municipality of Atlántida. Three years ago she saw the need to start a business to earn an income for her family. She has a grocery store where she sells basic staples such as rice, sugar, lard, corn, beans, condiments, medicine, soft drinks, among other things.

She has decided to request her third loan, which is for 25,000 Honduran Lempiras, that she will also invest in stocking her business. She is going to purchase basic grains, lard, medicine, soft drinks, flour, sugar, etc. She plans to have her business well stocked so she can increase sales. Her goal is to have an income that she can use to help her children finish their education.
