Juana Oneyda's story

Juana, 26, is married and has two children; she lives in a suburban neighborhood in San Pedro Sula with her husband, children and father. Juana is a very hardworking person who used to sell clothes but two and a half years ago she and her husband decided to open a grocery store to sell basic grains, milk, coffee, salt, canned goods, soft-drinks, Pampers, notebooks, cosmetics, etc. and she also has a fruit and vegetable stand. She’s set up the fruit and vegetable stand outside a relative’s house that’s near hers because there are more passersby there and she sells her products more quickly.

She’s already requested three ODEF loans and the current one is for 15,000 Lempiras she’ll use to stock the store with daily use items as well as fruit and vegetables in order to have more products to offer to customers and improve sales. Her goal is to keep both the grocery store and the fruit and vegetable stand well-stocked to increase her income.
