Doña Cecilia is 58 years old. She is a single mother and has three children. She lives with one of them in a neighborhood in the municipality of Choloma, Cortes. She has always worked in business. She has generated her own income for approximately 25 years. Doña Cecilia now sells Avon and Selcia beauty products and cosmetics, such as creams, lotions, shampoo, deodorants, makeup, etc. She makes her sales as a street vendor and through catalog orders. In addition, she has apartments that she rents, where she obtains additional income. She has been a client of ODEF for a number of years. Now she is applying for a loan of 23,000 Lempiras, which will be her 14th loan, and with which she is going to buy creams, lotions, shampoo, makeup, and other items to continue selling. Her plan is to set up a mini-store in her house.
