Santos Eusebio's story

Santos Eusebio is 34 years old, and he has been married for 13 years. He has three children; ages 7, 10, and 12. The children go to school. He lives in the village of El Tigre in Santa Cruz, Yojoa.

For two years Santos has had his business of selling women’s and children’s clothes, hats, belts, sandals, purses, and shoes. He does this every day, but on Saturday and Sunday he sells at a place in Taulabe, which is a village close to his house. He already has an established customer base.

He started this business with his own money, and he has reinvested his earnings in order to increase his inventory.

This is the first loan that he has requested. The loan is to buy more clothes and shoes because the good season for sales is coming.

The plan that he has is to keep his business stocked in order to get more earnings. He will pay for his children’s educational expenses from that income.
