Fermina's story

Fermina is forty-four years old. She lives with her husband in a neighborhood in Tegucigalpa, in the center of Honduras. She has two children who are her dependents. For several years, she has made a living selling snacks, like yucca, french fries, stuffed tortillas, etc., from her home.

Fermina is a very hardworking woman. With the loan, she will buy potatoes, yucca, cabbage, meat, onions, vinegar, sauces, refreshments, sugar, etc. With these items, she will be able to meet the demand for her snacks.

Fermina hopes that the investment in her business will generate sufficient income so that she can move herself ahead with her family. She also hopes that her business will continue to grow, allowing her to create job opportunities for others in the future. Her dream is to see her children graduate with greater opportunities in life.
