A loan of $775 helped to buy supplies to make food to sell.


Marta Elena's story

Marta is 46 years old and married. She lives with her husband in a neighborhood in the city of Choloma, Cortes. Marta used to work in a factory. However, seven years ago she undertook a business of selling food. This business is centrally located in the city where there is a constant influx of people. She offers a variety of food (main courses and sweets) according to her customers’ preferences. This has allowed her to grow in her business. As a completely enterprising person, in order to continue working, she requested a loan for 15,000 lempiras from ODEF. She needs the loan to buy the supplies needed to make the food and to buy drinks. By making this investment she will be able to better tend to her customers. Her dream is for her business to be able to get more customers. She also wants to make it bigger in order to make it more comfortable.
