Elvin Porfirio's story

Elvin Porfirio F. M. is 29 years old, married, and has a six month old son. He lives in the town of La Union, which is two hours away from the city of Juticalpa. For the past three years he has managed a small business selling lubricants, accessories, and automobile parts. His business is open to customers from 7am until 9pm. He and his wife are responsible for managing the store.

Elvin will use this loan to expand his business by acquiring a wider variety of accessories and auto parts. Whenever his neighbors need these type of products, they no longer have to travel into the city.

Elvin dreams of providing better living conditions for his wife and son. In addition, he hopes to have his own storefront for his business.
