A loan of $700 helped to buy food products like dairy products, meat, sausages, and basic grains in order to stock her business.

Coritza Aracely's story

Coritza, age 36, lives in a village in the Omoa municipality in Cortes. She is a single mother, and she has four children.

The greatest part of her income is dependent upon the sale of basic needs products for daily consumption like rice, salt, lard, sugar, beans, sweets, dairy products, sausages, soft drinks, and juices, etc. She established this grocery store approximately eight years ago out of the need for income. Little by little she has been stocking her business. That is where she gets the income she needs to support her family.

She has requested two loans from ODEF, and this third loan has been invested in her grocery store. She bought daily consumption products like dairy products, sausages, meat, and grains, etc. With her income she will maintain a better quality of life.

Her goal is to keep her business stable and to continue benefitting from the help that ODEF has given her.
