A loan of $575 helped to buy ladies' pants and dresses for stocking her store.


Karen Lorena's story

Karen is 28 years old, married, and has three children. She lives in the town of Santa Cruz de Yojoa with her husband and children. Before, Karen used to make tortillas to sell; she has always been a merchant.

A year ago she established her own business in her home selling clothing. She sells pants, shirts, shorts, blouses, etc. She has decided to obtain another loan, this being her eight loan cycle in ODEF, and it is for 11,000 lempiras.

The investment she is going to make is to stock dresses and pants to sell. She wants to continue working so that she can deal with her commitments, be financially solvent, and see her business grow.
