Florinda's story

Florinda is 55 years old, married, and has one child. She lives in the town of Taulabe, Comayagua.

For the past 16 years, she has generated income through her business of selling lime powder. Doña Florinda buys quantities of lime powder in barrels and then packs the product in bags for eventual resale. She says that selling lime powder is very profitable and has her own set of buyers for this products.

Doña Florinda has received five loans from ODEF. She is currently requesting another one in the amount of 6,000 HNL so that she can restock her business by purchasing 20 barrels of lime powder for resale. Florinda believes this investment will increase her sales and result in better income. Her goal is to continue growing her business. She wants to achieve financial solvency so that she can be prepared for any priority that presents itself in the future.
