Nimia's story

Nimia is 47 years old, married, has two children, and lives in a town located in the municipality of San Pedro Sula, Cortes. In the past, she made a living selling bread and tamales, a traditional stuffed-corn dish. 12 years ago, she set up her own grocery store selling foodstuffs such as meat, sausages, churros, basic grains, fizzy drinks, and other items.

She has kept her business on an even keel through the investment of various loans with ODEF. The loan of 8,000 Lempiras she is requesting at the moment will be her eleventh. She will use it to buy goods such as basic grains, sugar, bread, fizzy drinks, churros, cleaning products, and groceries to stock her shop. Her plan is to achieve her goal of making her business a big grocery store.
