Doña Maria is 49 years old, married, and has four children. She lives in Santa Cruz de Yojoa. For the past 10 years, Doña Maria has managed her own business of selling merchandise such as clothing, shoes, sandals, and other items. The business is in her home, but she also conducts sales as a traveling vendor. She has established customers and is doing very well with her sales.

Maria is a repeat client of ODEF. She is requesting a loan of 10,500 HNL so that she can buy merchandise, such as sandals and new clothing to restock her business. Having a variety of products in her inventory will increase her sales. Her plan is to grow her business and keep it active because it is the source of income for her family.
