Suyapa
Maria Suyapa is 57 years old and divorced. She has a 19 year old daughter who is studying at the university. She lives in the Chamelecón neighborhood in San Pedro Sula, Cortes

Maria has been selling food for nine years. She started this business seven years ago. She was driven to get income to support her family. Even though she has help from the father of her daughter, she needed extra income to pay for the household expenses and her daughter’s education.

She says that her clientele is from her neighborhood. Therefore, selling her food is going well for her. She has help from another person in order to provide her customers with quality service. She has managed to sustain this business with a lot of work. Also, thanks to the loans that ODEF has given her, she has a much better quality of life and is better than before. She sells lunches, “baleadas” (flour tortillas with beans, eggs, butter, cheese and meat), juices, soft drinks and sweets. She waits on her customers from 6:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

The loan she is requesting for 18,000 lempiras is her 26th loan. She needs it to stock up on products to make the meals that she sells. She will buy things like rice, beans, sugar, flour, meat, condiments, soft drinks, and sweets, among others.

Her goal is to expand her business. Then she would manage to get the money that is needed for her daughter to graduate from the university. Her goal is also to hire a second person in the business in order to meet the customers’ demand.
