A loan of $1,075 helped to buy ingredients for tamales like corn, spices, meat and firewood, etc. to sell.

Norma Elizabet's story

Norma, 38, married, has three children and lives in the city of Choloma, Cortés. Norma sells tamales, a business she started twenty years ago and that has been her source of income. Besides tamales, she also prepares natural medicines to sell, which represents an extra income for her family. Norma says that previous loans have helped her to expand her business and get her own customers. She also works on request.

Norma has requested several loans with ODEF and is now requesting one for 21,000 lempiras [HNL] to buy ingredients needed to prepare tamales, such as corn, spices, meat and firewood. This investment will help her to increase her production. Her goal is to make enough profits to make some home improvements and give her children a more comfortable life.
