Santos's story

Santos is 35 years old and lives with her husband and son in a village in the municipality of Esparta in the Department of Atlántida. Eight years ago, she started her own business, which is a small grocery store that sells everyday goods such as basic grains, sugar, lard, eggs, flour, canned goods, cleaning products, sausages, condiments, chips, candy, bread, dairy products and other groceries. Santos has been a client of the field partner for six loan cycles, and she used the previous loans to maintain her business. She is requesting her seventh loan for 20,000 HNL to improve her stock of basic grains, canned goods, cleaning products, chips, lard, sugar, flour, dairy products and other groceries. Santos says that with her store well-stocked she will be able to provide better customer service. Her goal is to expand her business and improve her income.
