Maria
María, 45, is married and has 8 children; she lives in the Cofradía sector, Cortes. She used to sell tortillas but over a year ago decided to open a grocery store where she sells basic staples like rice, beans, lard, eggs, flour, dairy products, canned goods, meats, soft-drinks and other grocery items.

María has been an ODEF client for ten loan cycles and the one she’s asking for now is for 6,000 Lempiras that she will use to stock the store with more products like dairy products, basic grains, lard, coffee, bread, sugar, soap and soft-drinks. This investment will help her keep the store well-stocked in order to provide better customer service. Her goal is to continue working to have a better standard of living and to help with her children’s schooling and in the future expand the business more.
