A loan of $800 helped to buy used clothing for women, men and children, and shoes for stock and to sell.


Maria Marta's story

Maria is 62 years old, single, and lives with a grandchild in the municipality of Masica, Atlántida. Previously, she worked raising pigs and selling clothing. At the moment, she decided to sell used clothing for women, men, and children, and shoes for women. She runs the business from her home and it is going well. She has asked for a third loan cycle for 15,000 lempiras to purchase used clothing for women, men and children, and shoes for stock and to sell, so she can increase her profits. Her goal is to help her grandchild get ahead and to maintain her business.
