Sergio Sigfredo
Sergio, 39, lives with his wife and children in the city of San Pedro Sula, Cortes. He has three children who are 19, 12 and 3 years old all of which are studying.

His current activity is tailoring; he makes outfits for all occasions, school uniforms and uniforms for public and private institutions. He opened his tailor shop twenty years ago with much effort and with his wife’s support. His only limiting factor is the lack of resources needed to meet customer demand.

He’s decided, therefore, to request his first, 10,000 lempira, loan to stock up on materials and supplies (fabric, thread, sewing supplies). He’s considering using his profits to expand the business and seek improvement that will make it possible for him to improve his economic situation and attain family sustainability.
