Jorge Humberto's story

Jorge Humberto O., 38, lives in Tegucigalpa's Sempe neighborhood. He has a small eatery where he sells breakfasts and lunches; his specialty is grilled meat. Jorge has 4 employees.

Jorge gets up at 5am every day because he has a contract to prepare food for the municipal police department.

Jorge is married and has 4 children, three of whom are students and one, who is a new-born.

He needs funding to invest in his business because sales are improving and he does not have enough supplies to meet all customer demand.

He needs the profits to cover family and household expenses. He states that he is very happy because God blessed him with another son who was born healthy; his son is barely two weeks old.
