A loan helped a member to purchase different types of clay and other tools to make her crafts.


Gs El Estadio. Group's story

Nolvia is 34 years old, a single mother, has 5 children, and lives with her family in the municipality of Gracias, Lempira.

For 11 years, she has worked making products, decorations and souvenirs from clay. She does this work at her house, making souvenirs, cups, plates, jars, pots, trays, and other products from this material.

Nolvia wants to invest in the purchase of raw material to continue making her products, so she is asking ODEF for a loan as part of a group loan, for 10,000 lempiras, to purchase different types of clay and other tools to make her crafts.

This will help her have more inventory for sale in her business. Her goal is to give her children a good education and attract more customers to her business so that it is more well-known.

The group is named El Estadio solidarity group and is made up of three members who work making crafts, live in the same sector, and are asking for a group amount of 32,000 lempiras to purchase different types of clay and other tools to make her crafts.
