A loan of $500 helped to buy new and used shirts and trousers to sell.

Ramon's story

Ramón, 51, is married and has 8 children. He lives in the town of Morazán, Yoro, with his wife and four of his children. Eight years ago he decided to sell clothes such as trousers, jeans and new and used shirts in order to have an income to support his family. His business is ambulatory; he sets up shop along the sidewalk in town. He’s been able to stay in business thanks to several loans which he has had from ODEF.

This loan he is requesting is for 10,000 Lempiras, which he needs to buy more clothing such as trousers and shirts so he can stock his business, increase sales and have a better income.

His goal is to stay in business and improve it every day to support his children’s schooling and provide each one of them with better living conditions.
