Reyna Isabel
Reyna, age 34, lives in the La Esperanza village. This is a rural community in the Colon department. She is married, but her husband lives outside of the country. She has two children, ages 16 and 11. Both of the children are in school.

The financial activity that generates income for her is a small grocery store. That is where she sells everyday food products (butter, grains, rice, soup, ketchup, toilet paper, salsas, beans, and salt, etc.).

She has had her business since 2008, working hard from 6am to 7pm, which has allowed her to increase her investment from 4,000 lempira to 16,000 lempira. This increase has also been the result of good administration.

When she started her business she had difficulties because of the lack of financing to invest in the business.

She has currently requested a loan from ODEF for 5,000 lempira (HNL), which will allow her to solve some financing difficulties. She intends to use the loan to increase her inventory and hopes to use her earnings to establish a mini-supermarket.

She intends to use the income that she gets to cover the basic household necessities, primarily food and her children’s education.
