Candida Rosa's story

Cándida is a 30 year-old single mother who lives with her 4 year-old son in her home where she has a small grocery store.

Cándida is requesting a loan of 7,000 lempiras to stock more soft drinks, churros, butter, candy, gum, paper, sugar, corn, and other products. She wants to improve herself and her store with the profits and support of this loan.
