Juan De La Cruz
Juan is 68 years old, married, and has four children. He lives with his wife, a daughter, and his grandchildren in a neighborhood of Taulabe, Comayagua.


Don Juan was a farmer, but he decided to establish his own business so that he could generate better income. He lives in an area that is known for producing honey. Twelve years ago, Don Juan began buying honey by the barrel that he would transfer to liter bottles for sale. He also sells bee pollen in small glass jars. In addition, Juan has a convenience store in his home where he sells basic household products. His wife manages the store.


Juan sells honey along the side of the highway where there are many vehicles and customers. He is requesting his ninth loan from ODEF in the amount of 10,000 HNL. The money will be used to buy honey and bee pollen to sell. He will also acquire food products to restock his convenience store. His plans include maintaining his business and improving his sales so that he will always have a source of income until he retires.
