Oneyda Patricia
Oneyda makes a living from her business. Her main work is selling sweets (including nacatamales, a corn food sold in a banana leaf), clothes and pigs. She has been doing this for three years and is a very hard-working and enterprising woman in her community. She started her own business because there was no work in the area. She started as a street vendor, selling "nacatamales" and, with an excellent response from her customers, she was able to buy a pig that she could resell at a better price. Through all this she has managed to buy her own home, pay for her children's education and help the family to prosper.

Oneyda is applying for this loan to buy feed, leaves, flour, butter and salt for the pigs and to buy creams, eye-shadow, powders, blouses, shirts and more for her second business.

Oneyda dreams of having her own swineherd and being able to sell the pigs for slaughter.
