A loan of $400 helped to buy school supplies to resell and to repair his truck.

Jose Alejandro's story

José Alejandro has been selling general merchandise like school supplies, toys, plastics, detergents, electric shavers, padlocks, etc. for two years. He sells them in an ambulatory manner in his vehicle outside a school. He states that he started the business with little capital and little by little his sales have increased favorably and his profits are profitable. He works from 9am until 6pm.

He asked ODEF for a 7500 lempira loan to stock up on school supplies and use part of it to repair his truck which is the work tool he counts on to transport his merchandise. His dream for the future is to have his own fixed locale and that his children are able to graduate from university.
