A loan of $525 helped to buy clothing and shoes.


Rosa Dilma's story

Rosa is 41 years old, married, and lives in a neighborhood of Omoa, Cortes, with her husband and two children (ages 9 and 21). Her two children are currently studying. Rosa is a Christian woman who is well-known in the neighborhood for being hardworking and dedicated to her business. For the past four years, she has been generating her own income by selling merchandise such as American clothing for women and men, as well as shoes. Her sales are conducted as a traveling merchant or by taking orders at her home. Rosa’s husband earns income from his job as a gardener at a private property.


She is grateful to ODEF and Kiva for the support that has been provided. With the help of her previous loan, Rosa was able to achieve financial stability in her business and growth in the number of customers. With this second loan of 10,000 HNL that she requested, Rosa will restock with more clothing and shoes so that she can maintain a stable business and increase her sales. Her goal is to work hard so that she can provide a better quality of life for her family and grow her business.
