Pablo, 52, is married with four children and lives in the municipality of San Pedro Sula. He used to work selling tortillas but for the last ten years has been selling ‘nieves’ (ground ice with honey and juice). He sells from place to place.

The loan he’s requesting is for 17,000 Lempiras that he will use to buy a mill to grind ice. This loan will help him save time because he’s had to go every day to have the ice ground. His goal for next year is to buy a popcorn popping machine.
