Clisanta's story

Clisanta, 64, is a single mother with eight children. Three of them are dependents. She lives in her home, located in a neighborhood of San Lorenzo, in southern Honduras, where she sells merchandise with the help of a daughter. Clisanta sells used clothing for children and adults. In addition to selling out of her home, she also goes out to sell in various areas of San Lorenzo. Clisanta is asking for the loan to buy bundles of American clothing like blouses, pants, dresses, shirts, swim trunks, etc., as well has low-cost plastic knickknacks since she wants to expand her business. This way, she hopes to have more income and continue to support her daughter, who is also a single mother with three children. Her wish is to support her so that she can build a house to raise her three children. Clisanta is resolute and strong, so she has been able to move forward on her own and support her children. She is a great example for everyone and as a client, she is excellent. She makes her payments on time. She is asking for her sixth loan.
