Miguel Angel's story

Miguel, 28, lives in a village in Tela, Atlántida. He has been married to Kayla for four years. She’s a housewife and helps him out with the business. The couple has a one-year old son.

Miguel’s business consists in selling hot-dogs, fruit, fruit juice and merchandise. He started the business two years ago and he puts in 10-hour work days. He used to work in a hardware store in San Pedro Sula but he wanted to open his own business to better take care of his family and have time to attend church. He took out a loan to start the business and despite delinquency and competition has been able to get ahead and stock the business.

He requested this L18,000 loan to stock inventory. He will buy grapes, apples and clothes for the Christmas season. Miguel hopes to be able to provide his son with a good education and manage to strengthen the business to provide his customers with what they request so that he can keep the clientele happy.
