Maria Del Rosario's story

Doña María is 61 years old, married, and has four children. She lives with her husband and children in the town of Santa Cruz de Yojoa.


For the past seven years, Doña María has been selling merchandise such as clothing for women, men, and children. She accepts orders and makes home deliveries. María also sells soft drinks, snack foods, sweets, and cookies. She previously sold tortillas. María is an enterprising woman who always looks for ways to generate income. She decided to request her second loan from ODEF so that she can remain active in her business. The amount of 5,000 HNL will be used to buy more soft drinks, snack foods, candy, and clothing so that she can increase her inventory and her sales.


Her goal is to establish her business in a centralized location and to expand it even more.
