Francisco
Don Francisco is 47 years old, single, and has two children who are being cared for by their grandmother. He lives in the suburban subdivision of San Pedro Sula.


At one time, Francisco was working for a private company but he later lost his job. He decided to enter the retail trade and has now worked as a traveling merchant for 10 years. He leaves to make home deliveries of merchandise, but he also sells from his house where he has a small grocery store. The products he sells include bread, juices in bags, packets of condiments, eggs, salt, pureed beans, and some used clothing. This business is a strong source of income by which he is able to sustain his family.


In order to restock his grocery business, Francisco is requesting a loan of 10,000 HNL since he plans to sell more food products such as juices, bread, and pureed beans. This is the sixth loan he has requested, which will help maintain and grow his business. All of his efforts are geared toward growing his business and improving his living conditions.
