A loan of $750 helped to buy clothes for the business.


Maria Josefina's story

María, 52, lives in her house located in a neighborhood in San Lorenzo in southern Honduras. She’s been selling pants, dresses, blouses, skirts, children’s clothes, etc. for 15 years. María’s customers are friends and neighbors who visit her business located at home daily. Her sales are from Monday to Sunday.

María needs the loan to buy blouses, dresses, skirts, pants, shirts, underwear, etc. because she wants to take advantage of the Day of the Child season to buy more merchandise and earn higher profits. With the loan’s support she intends to increase her merchandise. María’s dream is to expand the business more.

San Lorenzo, Honduras - August, 2013.
