Kelin Ester's story

Kelin is a very hard-working and responsible person who lives with her mother and her sisters in the community of Santa Cruz de Yojoa, Cortés, a community in the north of Honduras. Her work is the sale of new and used clothing, shoes, sandals, lotions and more, in the neighborhood in the center of Santa Cruz de Yojoa, Cortés. She serves the entire community and people who visit from other communities. She has carried out this business for more than 4 years. She needs the loan to invest in products such as clothes, shoes, sandals, and women's accessories for her business. She wants to have much more variety of products to offer her customers, and to attract new customers to her business. She hopes that the loan will help her a lot because, thanks to it, she will have the products needed to meet the needs of her customers, and to have more income that will increase her family's quality of life. Kelin hopes that her business will continue growing and in this way support her family and be able to have better opportunities in the future. Santa Cruz de Yojoa, Honduras – April- 2014
