Digna, 44, is a single mother with three children and lives in the town of Másica, San Juan Pueblo, Honduras. For four years she has been selling food that she makes herself, such as meat and rice pies, tortillas, ground beef pies, soft drinks and sweets. The stall she has is next to a school so sales are high on a daily basis.
She requested a loan in the amount of 12,000 HNL to stock her business with the items she needs for her food products such as seasonings, meat, corn flour, wheat flour and pastries. She will also buy clothing to sell to earn extra income. Her goal is to continue working so she can give her children the education and food they need.
EMI is proud to support Digna Emerita with a loan of $25, made on October 3, 2013.
