Maria Vicenta's story

María is 36 years old and in a common-law relationship with her husband. They have four children and live in a neighborhood in the town of Choloma, Cortes.

Six years ago, María established her own grocery business where she sells a variety of household products such as rice, beans, sugar, bread, chips, soft drinks, sweets, lard, pasta, paper, soap, and other items. She decided to request her second loan from ODEF in the amount of 20,000 HNL so that she can restock her business, as well as increase her sales and her income. María will buy sugar, rice, beans, chips, soft drinks, lard, bread, eggs, and other products. Her plan is to grow her business so that she can have a better life with her family.
