Olga Marina's story

Olga is 38 years old and single. She lives with her sister in a suburban neighborhood in San Pedro Sula. She worked for a private company for many years. Later on she was left without a job. However, a year ago she decided to establish her own business of selling food, candy, and soft drinks. She has her business set up in the center of the city. She offers her customers buffet style breakfasts and lunches. She will use the 10,000 lempira loan she is requesting to buy the supplies she needs every day to make the food. She will buy things like meat, flour, shortening, condiments, vegetables, soft drinks, and rice, etc. Her plan is to grow in the business and to, in the future, open another eatery in order to get more income.
