Santos Neptali's story

Santos Neptali D. F. is 48 years old and lives in the La Pradera neighborhood in the community of San Esteban, Olancho. He lives with his wife, who does the household chores and also helps him attend to the business, as well as his 12-year-old son who is a student.

Santos has a small grocery store. He started his business five years ago because of the lack of opportunity for employment. Santos works with his wife, both of whom want to be able to provide a better life for their son in which he has all of the basics and necessities for a decent life.

He is requesting this loan to be able to purchase a larger quantity of basic food items and have his store better stocked. Santos wants to increase his sales to establish a separate store so that he can continue investing in his son’s education until he receives his university degree because he is convinced that if his son studies, he will have better life opportunities.
