A loan of $375 helped to buy more fabric and thread to make cushions to sell.


Reinelda's story

Reinelda is 52 years old, and she is married. Her husband works with a taxi. She has three children, and she lives with them in the Intibucá municipality. She has always liked making clothes.

She has been making different designs of cushions for 15 years. She also mends clothes. She sells the cushions at the local market and to the general public. This business activity has helped her generate income to cover household expenses.

She is requesting a loan for 7,000 lempiras. This is her fourth loan with ODEF, and she will use it to buy more fabric and thread that she needs to keep making cushions. This loan will help her to keep raw materials on hand in order to work and be solvent.

Her goal is to always keep her business in order to help her household and her children with their education.
