Pedro lives in Choluteca, Honduras, where for the last eight years he has made a living by selling plastic goods, paper plates and cups, and flatware.
Pedro sells his wares at a stand at the local market and has a large web of clients that includes local hotels and restaurants.
He is requesting a loan of HNL 10,000 to purchase merchandise. Pedro hopes to keep working with Prisma in order to grow his small business.
