Helmer lives in the Choluteca region of Honduras, where he has operated a small convenience shop for the last 10 years. His business has enjoyed modest success over the years due to its strategic location in an area with high foot traffic. Helmer is requesting a loan of Lps.15,000 with which to buy merchandise for his store. He is very grateful to Prisma for their support and hopes to continue growing his business.
