Alma Nuvia's story

Alma is 29 years old, married, and has two children. She lives in Santa Cruz de Yojoa, Cortes.

For three years she has made a living in sales. She sells shoes, sandals, blouses, dresses, pants, sheets, etc. Previously she made a living as a domestic worker and felt that she needed to have another source of income. She decided to sell merchandise and now she helps out with the household expenses.

She is requesting her first loan with ODEF for 2,700.00 lempiras to buy merchandise and keep her business stocked. Her goal is to continue working hard to realize financial growth for her family and grow everyday.
