Gloris Grisela's story

Gloris is 36 years old and lives with her husband. She has 2 dependent children. She lives in the community of San Lorenzo, a valley in the south of Honduras. She has her own house and for the last 11 years she has made a living selling groceries such as coffee, eggs, basic grains, meat and other items. Gloris is a very hard-working woman and in the community she is an example of hard work and dedication. With previous loans she has improved her house and also her financial situation. Now she has a car and cows and also sells curd cheese. She is asking for the loan to buy more products for her business such as bread, eggs, coffee, sugar, lard, beans, rice, cheese, milk, butter, toilet paper, soap, detergent and bleach. She wants to stock up because the demand is quite high during this winter period. With the help of the loan she will improve her business and so improve her quality of life. She pays her loan instalments consistently. Her dream is to buy dairy cows so she can sell more curd cheese and milk and so increase her income. San Lorenzo, Honduras - May 2014.
