Maria Somelia's story

Sra. María is a responsible, honest, and hardworking person. She lives with her husband and three children in southern Honduras. Her business involves selling food.

Doña María is requesting a loan because she needs to buy chicken, beef, soft drinks, rice, beans, tortillas, bananas, potatoes, cassava, condiments, and other items. By having a sufficient inventory of products, she can continue preparing the dishes that she sells. With this loan, Doña María hopes to have enough products to satisfy the demand from her customers since her business is located in a commercial area.

With the profit she earns, María hopes to slightly improve the financial situation for herself and her family. In the future, she hopes that her business will become the largest diner in the duty-free zone. Thanks to the investment she has made, she hopes that her children will become good people and that society will offer them better opportunities.
