Maria Olga's story

Maria is 51 years old, a widow, and has six children. She lives in Morazan, Yoro. Maria is very hardworking and used to do sewing work, but then wanted to increase her income and decided to set up a food business. She makes typical food and refreshments but her greatest requests are for baleadas (flour tortillas filled with beans, eggs, cheese, cream, etc.). She sells these baleadas for breakfast and dinner. Her dream is to have a commercial location.

She has gotten several loans through ODEF and is grateful for the support. She will use the 5,000 Lempiras to buy supplies, such as flour, lard, eggs, beans, cheeses, etc. to make baleadas and other foods. Her goal is to always keep her business active to generate income and support her children with their education.
