A loan of $600 helped to buy seafood and fish for her business.

Maria Del Carmen's story

María is 40 years old and is a single mother. She lives in her house with her daughter who is 18 years of age. For the past 10 years, she has worked buying seafood at wholesale and selling it to people from the area's dining places as well as to individuals. She also travels to the country's capital where she has customers in the city's markets.

She's a very determined woman, and feels satisfied with the support that has been given to her. She lives in Campamento Nacaome Valle in the south of Honduras.

María is asking for 11,000 Lempiras to buy seafood and fish. With the help of this loan she wants to continue to invest in her business and increase her income. Her dream is to buy a vehicle in order to be able to go to more places to sell her fish and grow her business to have a better quality of life.
