Martha Lidia's story

Martha, 64, is a single mother; she has a son. She lives in a village belonging to the municipality of Tela, Atlántida with her son, daughter-in-law and three grandchildren.

Martha has had her own grocery store for three years where she sells basic staples like rice, sugar, salt, coffee, bread, Salsina [brand of spice mix], pasta, toilet paper, soft-drinks, meats, condiments and canned goods. She wants to increase stock in her grocery store in order to increase sales and income. She’s asking for a 13,000 Lempira loan which will be her sixth cycle with ODEF that she’ll use to buy more products like soft-drinks, meats and basic grains to stock her store with. Her goal is to expand the business and use profits to do home improvements.
