A loan of $700 helped buy stock for her corner store.


Alejandra's story

Sra. Alejandra is an honest and responsible person. She lives in a community in the south of Honduras with her husband and their three children. She runs a corner store, a business she has had for six years. It is located at the main entrance to the community so it is very busy and well known to local people.

Alejandra is seeking a loan to buy corn, lard, eggs, cheese, soft drinks, doughnuts, rice, beans, bread, coffee, butter, meat, juices etc. so that she can have more stock in her store.

She expects the loan will help her greatly as she will be able to have the items that her customers ask for and thus satisfy their needs. She hopes that sales will increase considerably and she will earn more money and improve her own and her family's standard of living.

Alejandra hopes to expand her business and continue helping her children to achieve their goals and dreams such as completing their education and becoming decent people with better opportunities in life.
