Marta Alicia's story

Marta, 34, lives with her common-law husband and their five children in the municipality of Choloma, Cortes. She runs her own grocery store and sells staple grains, sugar, flour, salt, bread, eggs, doughnuts, soft drinks, dairy products, canned goods and personal hygiene products.

She previously worked in a factory but when she was laid off she decided to start this business. She has asked for a second loan of 15,000 Lempiras to stock her shop with such items as staple grains, flour, lard, dairy products, soft drinks, sugar, bread, eggs, doughnuts and other things she needs to increase her sales. Her goal is to expand her business, restock it and increase her earnings.
