A loan of $1,125 helped to buy food products in order to stock her business.

Doris Yaneth's story

Doris, age 45, is a single mother. She has two children, and she lives in the Santa Cruz de Yojoa municipality.

Doris used to work selling food. However, three years ago she wanted to become independent and work in her own business. She started a grocery store, where she works 14 hours a day selling basic needs food products like rice, sugar, beans, dairy products, sausages, and other grocery products.

She has gotten ahead with this business, and she is motivated to continue working with the help that ODEF has given her.

She requested this loan for 21,000 lempiras to buy food products in order to stock her business and to have the products she needs to offer her customers.

She hopes to grow in the business, improve her family’s standard of living, and to give her children an education.
