She opened her own business fifteen years ago; she sells different foods at home, like fried chicken, fried plantain, baleadas [thick flour tortillas filled with beans], tacos and beverages. For her fourth cycle, she has requested a loan of 30,000 Lempiras [HNL] to buy ingredients such as different types of meat, rice, vegetables, flour, shortening and spices. She believes that this investment will help her to expand her business and help her family.
