Isery Seminou Group's story

Kasia, 29, is a single mother of two. She lives in La Ceiba, Atlántida. In search of a way to earn her own income, she started her business selling cassava bread, coconut bread, and cornflour drinks five years ago. She sells her products from her home and in her community.

Kasia is applying for this loan with her group, which is called Isery Seminou. This group is made up of five members, each of whom is applying for 7,000 Honduran lempiras, making a group total of 35,000 lempiras. They will use this loan to buy ingredients, such as flour, coconut, yuca, sweetcorn, sugar, and others to make bread, cornflour drinks, and cassava bread, with the goal of selling these products and earning an income. Their goal is to use the earnings to build a large oven with a greater capacity that will benefit the entire group.

As they appear in the photo, the group members are: Petronila on the left in a striped dress, followed by Benita, Juliza, Dunia, and Kasia on the right with a white shirt and pink bag.
