Omar De Jesus's story

Omar O. is a very hard-working person who is committed to his work. He makes handicrafts from wood and distributes his products to stores and souvenir places in San Pedro Sula, Tegucigalpa and Choluteca. He also sells to individual salespeople.

Omar's workshop is in his home. He works very hard to get his family ahead. Omar works from Monday to Saturday. He gets up at 4 o'clock in the morning to finish the orders that he has every week. He will use his loan to buy materials that he needs to make his handicrafts since a lot of tourists come to our country during the Christmas period and they are the most important customers that there are.
