A loan of $525 helped to buy new clothing to sell.

Wendy Lorena's story

Wendy is 30 years old, married, and has two children. She lives in a suburban neighborhood of San Pedro Sula.

A year ago Wendy began selling merchandise such as blouses, jeans, undergarments, socks, and trousers. She conducts her sales as a street vendor and by taking orders. Wendy established this business with her own savings that she acquired from her previous job. The loan she is requesting is for 10,000 HNL and will be used to restock her business. This will enable her to complete the outstanding orders that she has to deliver.

Her goal is to establish a permanent business in her house and to present her products with display cabinets and shelving. She is grateful to ODEF and Kiva for the opportunity that has been provided through this loan.
