A loan of $500 helped to buy a boat for her business.

Lucia Guillermina's story

Lucia Guillermina is 51 years old. She doesn't have any children who depend on her, and she lives with her husband in her own house, which is located in the community of San Lorenzo, in the south of Honduras.

Lucia Guillermina has been making her living selling tortillas for the last 16 years. She sells her tortillas to a restaurant in her area and also serves her neighbors who come to grind corn at her mill.

Lucia Guillermina is seeking a loan to buy a small motorboat. She wants her son to fish in the sea and to bring back dry firewood from the sea to sell, in order to obtain a higher income to help with household expenses. She is very happy to continue working with Prisma. Lucia says her dream for this year is to buy a boat.
