Maritza Maribel
Maritza is a hardworking, 30 year old woman living in a neighborhood in San Pedro Sula with her spouse and three children; they all help each other out. Her husband used his savings to help her start a business. She saw the opportunity to open a food stand selling breakfasts, ‘baleadas’ [stuffed flour tortillas], fried chicken, lunches and refreshments. In addition to selling food she also sells general merchandise as a way of earning extra income.

She’s asking ODEF for a 15,000 lempira loan to expand her services and also sell snacks, candy, juice, cakes, etc. as well as to buy some merchandise she needs and ingredients needed to make her dishes so that the business will produce more and generate more income for her home’s economic support.

She states that she’s grateful to ODEF and KIVA for the help she’s gotten and her main goal is to have a house of her own to set up her business there and make it grow even more.
