Olga Alicia's story

Olga Alicia is 28 years old and is married. She has two children aged 4 and 8 years old, one of whom is in school. She lives with her family in the village of El Antigual de Bonito Oriental, in Colon. Her husband works in agriculture.

Motivated to earn more income for her household, Olga has dedicated herself to selling cosmetics, lotions, creams, shampoo and other Avon products. She also sells cellphone chargers. She works six hours a day doing this and makes her sales at home or by orders.

She is requesting a second loan from ODEF to invest in her business, with which she will purchase creams, lotions, deodorants, etc. to fulfill the customer orders she has in place.

She hopes to excel and to have a better standard of living.
