Blanca's story

Sra. Blanca Lidia is 48 years old and has three dependent children. She lives in her own home with her children and husband in the community of San Lorenzo, which is in southern Honduras. Blanca has been in the business of selling clothes for 10 years. She also sells snack foods as a street vendor. Her customers are friends, neighbors, and people who visit the shrimp, sugar cane, melon, and watermelon farms.

Blanca is requesting a loan so that she can restock her business for the Christmas season, a time when her sales are adequate. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy new clothing for men and women such as blouses, skirts, shirts, trousers, dresses, and other items. She has several orders and wants to take advantage of this occasion so that she can earn more income. With the support of this loan, she hopes to improve her earnings.

Blanca's dream is to have a successful clothing business in her home and to improve her sales at the end of the year.
