A loan of $1,275 helped to buy basic staple items to sell.


Raul Antonio's story

Raúl, 35, is married and has two children; he lives in the municipality of Masica, Atlántida. He decided nine years ago to start his own grocery store business to sell basic staples like basic grains, soft-drinks, snacks, dairy products, meats, grocery items and others. He wants to offer a variety of products and increase his clientele which is why he’s decided to request a 25,000 Lempira loan to stock his store. His plan is to make the business grow to support his family.
