Marian Alicia's story

Marian Alicia is 53 years old. She is married, and has six children aged between 9 and 22. She lives in the city of La Ceiba, in Atlántida. Doña Marian has been working for the last 15 years preparing home remedies. She explains that this is an activity that has been a tradition in her family. For this reason, she has the skill and the knowledge of how to make various remedies such as purgatives, remedies for children, for gastritis, and for stomach-ache. She says that her customers are satisfied with the service she provides, and so most of them are stable customers. She also has additional income from selling fresh fish. She is requesting a loan of 15,000 lempiras from ODEF to purchase raw materials for making her home remedies. The other part will be used to purchase fish for sale. Her goal is to continue preparing her remedies and to have sufficient materials to be able to continue selling them.
