Doralina's story

Doralina is 52 years of age, married, and has four children. She lives with her husband and one daughter in the city of Olanchito, located in Yoro. She has worked for 15 years making fabric items and clothing, such as curtains, sheets, furniture covers, cushions, and clothing repairs. She has her workshop at home, where she works as much as necessary.

Doralina has kept her business stable by using loans, and she has had 10 loan cycles with ODEF. This current loan will be used to buy fabrics, thread, needles and other materials that she needs to prepare her items. She hopes to have a more stable business, and make more use of it, and her plan is to have family stability and have a larger workshop.
