A loan of $225 helped to buy fish to sell.

Lelis Yolanda's story

Lelis is 42 years old, lives with her long-term partner, has seven children, and lives in the town of Santa Cruz de Yojoa. She has been earning a living to support her family for eight years now and her business is buying and selling fresh fish. She does her selling on foot in her town. She has kept her business stable by investing several loans. The one she is currently asking for is for 4,000 lempiras and it is her fourth loan cycle with ODEF and she tells us it has been going very well for her. She will buy fish to sell as she has a good demand. Her plan is to continue with her business to improve her family's quality of life.
