Iveth Magadalena's story

Iveth, 28, lives with her husband in her house located in a community in El Jícaro, Galán, in southern Honduras. For several years she’s been selling snacks and meals like seafood soup, grilled meat, tacos, enchiladas, hamburgers, etc. Iveth’s business is home-based and her customers tend to be friends and people who pass by her house. Iveth’s asking for a loan to buy bread, meat, lettuce, cheese, beans, rice, soft-drinks, etc. to prepare the various dishes she sells because she wants to expand the business introducing dairy products to better stock it since they are being offered to her at a good price and they are very good quality. With the loan’s support she intends to fill her financial need. Iveth’s dream is to buy a car to transport herself to do her purchasing. San Lorenzo, Honduras – August, 2013.
