A loan of $525 helped to buy grains, soft drinks, meats, sausages, candy, and other items.


Marta Nelly's story

Maria is 55 years old and a single mother of two children. She lives with them in the town of Omoa, Cortes.

Doña Maria started her own grocery business 10 years ago. She sells products such as basic grains, sausages, dairy products, soft drinks, and other items. This business serves as her source of income. For this reason, she works hard in order to keep it well-stocked so that she can provide good service to her customers. With the help of the loans that ODEF has provided, she has managed to keep her business stable.

This loan she is requesting is her fifth one. She needs to restock her business with more products and plans to buy grains, soft drinks, meats, sausages, candy, and other items. As a result, she will be able to offer a variety of products to her customers. Her hope is to always maintain a stable business and keep her customers satisfied.
