Gloris Grisela's story

Gloris is 34 years old and lives with her husband and two children who depend on her. They live in the San Lorenzo community in the southern valley of Honduras. She owns her own home, and for the past 10 years she has dedicated herself to selling groceries such as: coffee, eggs, basic grains, meats and other foods. Gloris is a hardworking woman who is an example of dedication in the work community.

With the loans she has been able to improve her home and financial situation; she now has a car and cows. Gloris is seeking a loan to purchase more products such as: eggs, sugar, bread, coffee, rice, beans, meat, etc. for her business as she hopes to stock the store since her demand is very high during the Christmas season. With the help of this loan, she will improve her business and through that, her quality of life. Gloris's dream is to purchase dairy cows in order to sell more curd and milk so she can increase her earnings.
