A loan of $350 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.


Irma Margarita's story

Irma, 38, is in a common law relationship with her husband and they have three children; she lives in the municipality of Taulabe. She’s sold grocery items like canned goods, eggs, shortening, soft-drinks, rice, sugar, corn, beans, flour, soap, etc. for two years. Her store is home-based and she already has a good clientele.

She’s decided to request a 6,700 Lempira loan to be able to stock her store with more products like basic grains, shortening, soft-drinks and snacks to meet customer demand. She’s planning to invest her profits in home repairs in order to have better conditions.
