Teodoro's story

Teodoro lives in the community of Colon, Honduras and since the age of 13, he has worked with livestock, and currently he manufactures dairy products. Together with his spouse, they fight to give their three children, two of whom are in school, a better future. One of their greatest aspirations is to grow their business to sell other products for food consumption. In the community they live in there is no electricity so the inhabitants have to walk long distances and return by raft to make their purchases.

For some time, they have been wanting to purchase a solar freezer to help improve their customer service because then they will be able to have a variety of products and increase their sales, which will help provide a better quality of life to their family. In order to grow their business, Teodoro is requesting a loan from Soluz Honduras to purchase a solar freezer system, which will be a great benefit to his business.
