Maria Claribel's story

María, 51, is married and has two children who are 22 and 13 years of age; the youngest attends school and the other one is independent already. She lives with her family in the town of Choloma, Cortes.

María’s business activity is food sales. She started this business 25 years ago selling lunches to staff in various nearby firms. María states that she’s always enjoyed the business of food sales and this motivated her to work in it; besides the business is very profitable and it provides good profits. She works from 9am until noon.

This is her second ODEF loan. It’s 9,000 lempiras that will be used to buy foodstuffs like meat and other supplies like firewood, paper towels, etc. for food preparation. Her goal is to support her daughter so that she can complete her schooling and also to be able to do some home improvements.
