G.s Doras Group's story

Dora is a very enterprising woman. She lives with her husband and three children in a community in the south of Honduras. Her business is a grocery store, which she has had for more than eight years. Dora needs this loan to buy groceries, such as sugar, beans, milk, coffee, bread, cheese, rice, water, butter, etc. With this loan, she hopes to increase her sales because she will have more fresh capital and products to offer her clients, who visit her daily during the season of national festivals. Dora and her fellow group members hope that their financial circumstances improve with this investment in their businesses. In a few years, Dora hopes that her business will be well-positioned as the largest and most well-known store in the area. She also hopes that she will be able to continue supporting her children so that they become good people for society. Nely has had a business selling tortillas and offering mill services for seven years. Senayda has had a small grocery store for five years. Choluteca, Honduras – August 2013
