María Luz's story

María is 39 years of age. She is a single mother with three children, and lives with them in the municipality of Choloma, Cortés.

Nine years ago, in her home she established a bakery where she sells doughnuts, flour cakes with chicken, homemade bread, etc. This business is her principal source of income.

María wants to invest in her business and is requesting a loan from ODEF in the amount of 15,000.00 Lempiras to buy supplies such as flour, sugar, oil, eggs, milk, baking powder, chicken, etc. This will help her to better stock her business and to have better income. Her goal is to make her business grow and to build her own house.
