Alex Roberto
Alex is a very hardworking and responsible young man. He lives in a community in southern Honduras with his family. His business is a grocery store, which he has been running for six years. It is located in his home.

Alex needs this loan to buy more products to continue doing his job. He wants to buy sugar, rice, beans, lard, flour, churros, soft drinks, soap, bread, milk, and other products for his business, which provides him with most of his income. He expects his sales to increase substantially thanks to this loan. It will be of great help to him, because he doesn't have the products he needs in order to cover his customers' daily orders, and this loan will enable him to improve his family's quality of life by increasing his household income.

Alex hopes to make his business grow in the near future so that he can continue to support his family and so that his children can get the education they need in order to have better opportunities in life.
