Grupo Libertad 1 Group's story

Mamerto is a hardworking man, dedicated to his job, and father of 4 children who are already of legal age. Mamerto's children help him economically. Mamerto conducts his work in various areas and neighborhoods in Choluteca in the south of Honduras. For more than 25 years, he has done this work on his bicycle.

Mamerto sells bread. He needs the loan to invest in buying bread. It would help him to have new capital, as he has loans and offers credit to his business customers. His dream is to build a house, since he rents and has not been able to save to buy his own house. Mamerto believes that with his business and the help of his children, he can dream of buying a house one day and stop renting.
