Maria Guadalupe's story

Sra. María is 65 years old and lives with her husband. They have no dependent children. María lives in a community in southern Honduras. She has her own home and has been in the business of selling groceries and soft drinks for four years. Doña María also sells clothing that is shipped to her from her children in the United States. She is an enterprising woman who greatly wants to succeed on behalf of her family.

María is requesting a new loan for home improvements. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy blocks, cement, sand, as well as pay for labor. With the help of this loan, she intends to improve her quality of life. She also wants to take advantage of the Christmas season for making these improvements since her kitchen is in bad condition.

This is the fourth loan she has requested from Prisma and she is an excellent client. Her dream is to have her kitchen finished this year.
