Alicia Alejandrina
Doña Alicia is 60 years old and single as a result of being a widow. She lives with two children and two grandchildren in a neighborhood of the city of Olanchito, Yoro.

Six years ago, Doña Alicia decided to have her own source of income so that she could cover the household expenses and help her family. She established a grocery store in her house where she sells everyday products such as rice, sugar, eggs, soft drinks, meat, dairy products, and other items. Alicia wants to maintain the inventory of her business and increase her sales, so she is requesting a loan of 25,000 HNL.

This is the second loan she has requested from ODEF and she will use it to buy food products to stock her store so that she can offer merchandise to her customers. In the future, she would like to expand the location for her business so that it can have a better appearance and more inventory.
