Glendis Zenaida
Glendis, 22, has a three-year-old daughter and lives in a rural village in the municipality of Tocoa, Colon Department with her parents and daughter. Her husband lives abroad.

Glendis decided to start her own source of income ten months ago. She sells basic staple items like basic grains, lard, flour, salt, pills, canned goods, toilet paper, etc. She used to work in a cafeteria but wasn’t able to spend time with her daughter. Now with this business she’s able to spend more time with her and her family.

She’s asked ODEF for two previous loans to keep her store stocked. This store is her source of income to cover household expenses.

She’s currently asking for her third loan for 15,000 lempiras to buy food items for her store. Her goal is to continue growing to obtain better profits and with help from her husband wants to build her own house.
