Luis Alberto's story

Luis, 50, lives in a common law relationship and has four children who attend public schools in the community. Luis is a merchant; he sells basic grains like beans and corn. He has more than 10 years’ experience in this type of activity. He sells his products at wholesale to people from Tegucigalpa and Danli. He buys the basic grains from various producers in villages adjacent to the zone and also in Nicaragua where prices are lower thus generating higher profits. He will use the loan to buy beans and corn and will use income earned to cover household expenses.
