Claudia Gloribel's story

Claudia, 43, is married and has four children; she lives in the town of Choloma, Cortes. She’s had a home-based business for three years where she sells food like fried chicken with fried plantain slices, fried chops, lunches, ‘baleadas’ (flour tortilla filled with beans, cheese, egg, etc.) and soft-drinks. She works every day from Monday through Saturday. It’s a profitable business that already has a regular clientele. She’s kept it stable and well-stocked thanks to the loans ODEF has granted her. The current loan is her 8th and it’s for 28,000 Lempiras that she’ll use to buy ingredients (flour, meat, basic grains, lard, condiments, soft-drinks, etc.) that she uses to prepare her meals. Her goal is to increase sales and to always have ingredients on hand. She plans to expand the business and earn more income to have a better standard of living
