A loan of $1,125 helped to buy two glass display cases and jewelry supplies to stock the business.

Isis Adonia's story

Isis is 36 years old and married. She lives with her husband and two children, ages 6 and 11, in the city of San Pedro Sula.

Isis makes jewelry like earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and rings. She also has a service of renting chairs and tables for special events, and this generates other income. She makes her products with stones like jade, pearls, amethyst, and turquoise, etc. She uses different colors of crystals, beads, and others. It is a product that sells a lot because it is so pretty.

She is requesting her third loan from ODEF for 21,000 lempiras. She needs it to buy two glass display cases to exhibit the product that she makes. She will be taking advantage of the opportunity of putting her product in a local supermarket. She will also buy jewelry supplies to stock the business.

This investment will help her increase sales. It will also help her to have her own place in the future; her dream is to have a place in a commercial area.
