Mirsa Yolanda
Mirsa, 43, is single and has a son. She lives with her mother, son and brother in an urban community in San Pedro Sula, Cortés Department. Mirsa used to do domestic chores but nine years ago decided to start her own business selling clothes like women’s and men’s pants, blouses, shirts, skirts and sandals. She was motivated to generate income on her own because she separated from her husband. She’s currently requesting a 25,000 Lempira loan to stock her business with new, seasonal clothes like pants, blouses, shirts, sandals, skirts and shorts for men, women and children. She is grateful for the financial support from ODEF Financiera, S.A. and from KIVA. In the future, she’d like to make her business grow and set it up in its own space because it currently operates from home.
