A loan of $1,250 helped to stock her grocery business.

Maria Sabina's story

Maria, 35, and her husband have two children. They live in the rural town of Choloma, Cortes. Maria has a corner grocery where she sells everyday products such as grains, soft drinks, sugar, butter, pasta, toiletries, canned goods, dairy products, snacks, etc. She has borrowed for the business before and this loan for 25,000 lempiras will be her ninth from the bank. She will use it to stock her business with rice, sugar, churros, eggs, butter, milk, soft drinks and snacks. Her goal is to increase her inventory and, in turn, her sales. For the future, she wants a full stock of merchandise for the store and the opportunity for her children to finish school.
