Honduras! I made loans to Honduras
I was so thrilled to see loans from Honduras on Kiva today. I had to jump on them. Honduras has a very special place in my heart. And today I got the chance to lend money to Denia Iydesa Amador Elvir for her home grocery store. She's going to purchase eggs, rice, sugar, coffee, flour, soap, butter, chicken, dairy products ham, corn and beans. I wish I could buy beans from her, its hard to find the yummy Honduran red beans here. (good thing I go down there with many suitcases full of stuff I leave there, so I fill it with coffee and beans when I come home).
I also loaned to Luis Adolfo Perez Alvares. He also has a home grocery store, and wants a loan to open another store that his wife will run.
Both Denia and Luis live in Danli, which is 92 miles east of Teguigalpa (closer to Nicarauga). It probably takes several hours to drive there, as the roads are very hilly. Tegus has more hills than San Francisco!
Its so exciting to loan to Honduras.
