Luz Maribel's story

Luz, 30, is married with three children; she lives with her family in Santa Cruz de Yojoa Municipality, Cortes. Luz has had her own grocery store for several years. She sells basic grains, soft-drinks, dairy products, packaged snacks, shortening, sugar, bread, eggs, etc. in it. She spends all day there and has the advantage that she can care for her family and run the business simultaneously.

She’s decided to request another loan for 15,000 Lempiras which will be her fifth ODEF cycle that has helped her keep her business active. She will buy shortening, beans, corn flour and other basic staple gods. Her goal is to stay in business and with her loans in order to live better with her family.
