Sandra Isabel's story

Sandra, age 53, is married and has three children. She lives in a suburban neighborhood in San Pedro Sula.

Four years ago she established her own business in her house. She sells merchandise like blouses, pants, curtains, sheets, and jeans. She also sells silver jewelry like chains, earrings, rings, and bracelets, etc. Her sales are made according to her customers’ orders.

Sandra has been a client of ODEF for 17 loans. She will invest the current loan she is requesting for 21,000 lempiras in the business. She will buy more merchandise to fill the orders that her customers have made.

Her goal is to always keep her business stable because it is a source of income for her family.
