Iris Yaneth's story

Doña Iris is 52 years old. She is the single mother of four children and lives with her granddaughter in a village outside Puerto Cortes. She has her own grocery store where she sells staple goods such as rice, sugar, butter, bread, eggs, condiments, churros, soft drinks, beans, and so on. She has had this business for ten years and invested a number of loans in it to keep it going. To increase her sales and customer base, she has requested another loan of 15,000 lempiras to stock products such as butter, sugar, beans, eggs, bread, rice, cleaning supplies, condiments, and so on. Her plan is to keep growing the business and help her granddaughter.
