Estela's story

Estela, 56 years old, is in a common-law relationship, and she and her spouse have three children. She lives in a community in the municipality of Choloma, in the department of Cortés.

Estela has been working for more than six years selling shoes, sandals, and clothes like blouses, pants, tops and other items. She runs this business from her home, and she also sells door-to-door.

She is satisfied with this way of earning income to contribute to her household's finances. She is currently requesting another loan of 12,000 Honduran lempiras. She plans to invest in buying more products, like clothes and sandals, to stock her business and increase her sales.

Her goal is to have a self-sustaining business.
