Irma's story

Irma, 63, is married; her children are all independent. She lives with her husband in a village belonging to the municipality of Santa Cruz de Yojoa. Irma opened her grocery store ten years ago where she sells basic food items like sugar, rice, lard, cleaning supplies, snacks, soft-drinks, bagged water, bread, pills and beans, among other grocery items. She’s kept the grocery store stocked by means of loans. She’s currently asking ODEF for her 5th loan for 25,000 Lempiras to buy food items in order to have a variety of items to sell thus increasing her sales. Her goal is to turn her store into a greater source of income for her family.
