A loan of $825 helped to buy stock merchandise for her store.


Santos's story

Santos, 34, lives with her husband and son in a village in Esparta, Atlántida. She opened her own grocery store 8 years ago to sell daily consumption items like basic grains, sugar, lard, eggs, flour, canned goods, cleaning supplies, plastic balls, condiments, snacks, candy, bread, plantain and other groceries. She’s been an ODEF client for six loan cycles to stay in business. The loan she’s requested now is for 16,000 Lempiras and she’ll use it to stock her store with more basic grains, canned gods, cleaning supplies, snacks, lard, sugar, flour, etc. With a well-stocked store she’ll be able to provide better customer service. Her goal is to make the business grow more and to earn good profits.
