Orlando's story

Orlando is 40 years old, married, and has two children (ages 14 and 9) who are in school. He lives with his family in the subdivision of Armando Gale de La Lopez in Choloma, Cortes.


A year and a half ago, Orlando earned money from the job where he worked previously and decided to use it to establish his own business performing bicycle repairs and selling bicycle parts. He offers painting and general repair services. Orlando attends to his customers starting at 6am.


He is requesting a loan of 10,000 HNL to invest in the purchase of bicycle parts that he can sell and use to offer repair services to his customers. His plan is to grow his business even more. With the income he will earn, Orlando will be able to build a house of his own and achieve a better standard of living for his family.
