Orfilia's story

Orfilia is 57 years old. She lives in a community in Cortes, Honduras. She is a humble and entrepreneurial person. She has been working at her small home supplies business (pulperia) for more than 35 years, which she has maintained with a lot of effort. She lives with her husband and two of her children.

Her husband works growing coffee and vegetables, this way supporting the household. Thanks to the previous loan for the purchase of a solar freezer, she could give her customers a better service. This benefited her by increasing her sales and having greater demand for refrigerated products.

She has asked for funding again from Soluz Honduras to purchase a greater capacity, (13 feet) solar freezer in which she can incorporate a wider variety of products. This will gain her more income to continue growing her business.
