Reyna Isabel's story

Reyna Isabel, 37, is a single mother; she has six children whose ages range between 18 and 5 years. The three youngest ones attend school and she lives in El Progreso, Yoro.

Reyna has a business where she makes tablets in assorted flavors. (They are made with sugar, milk, coconut and other ingredients). She sells them packed in trays offering her customers a quality product that she sells from a home-based locale or also in an ambulatory fashion. She started the business 8 years ago and states that it’s been gradually growing. She manages to earn income from it that’s allowed her to get ahead with her family. She spends all day in her activity.

She is currently asking ODEF for a 15,000 lempira loan to buy a machine (mill) to grind the coconut and also to use part of it to do some improvements to the locale where she does her sales. Her goal is to be able to build a sales point where her products can be better sold and that generates capital to finish building her house.
