Mariely De Jesus's story

Mariely is 32 years old and lives in a common-law marriage. She has three children with her partner. She lives in the municipality of Nueva Frontera, Santa Bárbara. She has had her own grocery store for 15 years, where she sells basic food items, such as rice, sugar, butter, beans, sweets, soft drinks, churros, bread, and cleaning products. This business is her family’s source of income. The loan she is requesting is for 20,000 lempiras, which she will use to stock her store with more products, such as sugar, butter, rice, beans, soft drinks, and sweets. She hopes to increase her profits in order to expand her house and her business.
