Olga Marina's story

Olga is 31 years old, a single mother due to divorce, and has three children with whom she lives in the sector of Cofradía, Cortes.

Previously, she worked caring for her house. For four years, she has worked selling general merchandise as a street vendor in the market of the area. She sells pants, blouses, shirts, socks, boxers, men's handkerchiefs, children's shoes, women's sandals, toys, and lotions.

Olga is asking for her second loan from the institution, for 20,000 lempiras, to invest it in the purchase of blouses, pants, dresses, children's clothing, cameras, towels, window curtains, and furniture rugs to resell.

This investment will help her to increase her sales. Her dream is to build her own retail space to establish her business in a permanent place.
