Ada Maritza's story

Ada Maritza is 36 years old, single, and has two children who depend on her for support. She lives in San Lorenzo, located in the southern Honduras valley. She has a home of her own and has been selling new clothing, shoes, sandals, and lotions on foot for the past five years through the San Lorenzo neighborhoods. Her customers prefer to buy from her because of her good prices and the quality of her merchandise. She travels by bus and taxi to the places where she will sell her items. Ada is a hardworking woman with a desire to get ahead. She is asking for this loan to buy new beach apparel for the Holy Week season. This loan will help her to increase her income and she is very happy to be working with PRISMA. She is a good client and is asking for her fifth loan. Ada’s dream is to have a good business and improve her home. San Lorenzo, Honduras – March 2014
