Santos Francisca's story

Santos Francisca is 36 years old and single. She has two children who depend on her. She has her own home located in the community of San Lorenzo in southern Honduras.

Santos Francisca has worked for 6 years selling charamuscas, fresh juices, and sewing dresses, skirts, and uniform pants. Her customers prefer her because she provides good service. Francisca gets up very early to milk her cows to later sell the milk. Then she starts to sew.

Francisca is asking for the loan to pay for home improvements. She wants to put in doors and balconies and to do that she wants to buy cement, sand and gravel. She is very happy to keep working with Prisma, since thanks to their loans her quality of life has improved.

Francisca's dream is to improve her house and with the help of this loan she hopes to do that and thus have a better quality of life for her family.
