Maria Argentina's story

María, 29, lives in a common law relationship with her husband in a village in the Municipality of San Marcos in Santa Bárbara. She works in a store and also works in agriculture.

María has a business she started two years ago. She sells basic staple items like beans, rice, flour, lard, eggs, cured meats, dairy products, meat, etc. María has her own customers and she takes care of them well. Profits she’s earned she’s reinvested in the store.

She’s asking ODEF for her first loan for 8000 lempiras to buy products she’s run out of like meat, dairy products and cured meats since these are necessary supplies that are in demand daily in homes. Her goal is to work very hard so that her grocery store will be the best in the zone in order to meet customer demand.
