A loan of $650 helped to buy grocery products to stock her store.


Maria Marta's story

Maria, 48, is a single mother who lives together with her son, daugher-in-law and granddaughter in a village of Villanueva in Cortes. Three years ago, Maria decided to set up her own business with a grocery store so that she would be able to generate a necessary income. She sells butter, rice, sugar, beans, flour, soap, churros, condiments, vegetables and other basic goods. She used to work in an assembly line and with the money she saved, she was able to start her own business. She is asking for a loan in her third cycle of 12,000 lempiras to buy rice, corn, beans, cleaning products, flour, butter, sugar and other products to stock her business. She hopes to generate the necessary income to be able to look after her family.
