A loan of $1,000 helped buy beverages, chicken, water, tortillas, etc.


Etilma Candelaria's story

For the last three years I have dedicated myself to selling fried chicken on the outskirts of the city of Choluteca. This is a good spot since it's on the freeway, and a lot of drivers heading to El Salvador or other places stop here on their way. I need capital to invest in prime materials (beverages, chicken, water, tortillas, etc.), which will allow me to raise my income and help my family.

Desde hace tres años me dedico a vender pollo frito en las afueras de la ciudad de Choluteca, este es un buen punto ya que esta en la carretera y se paran a comer viajeros hacia el Salvador o de otras comunidades. Necesito capital fresco para inventir en materia prima y de esta manera incrementar mis ingresos para ayudar a mi familia.
