A loan of $525 helped to buy children's clothes to sell.

Mayda Lizeth's story

Mayda, age 22, is married. Her husband works in a supermarket, and they have a two year old child. She lives with them in a neighborhood in the Puerto Cortes municipality.

Mayda has her own business of selling general merchandise. She sells sheets, body cream, hair cream, women’s perfume, and second hand clothes for men, women, and children. She sells her merchandise in an itinerant manner in neighboring communities and by order. She spends all day on her business.

She is requesting another loan from ODEF and Kiva for 10,000 lempiras. She will use the loan to buy children’s clothes because the school season is coming, and she will take advantage of this to increase her sales. Her goal is to continue working in the business in order to help her husband get ahead with the household expenses.
