Mario Eduardo's story

Mario is 31 years old, he is single and has three children that are seven, five and three years old. The two oldest study. He lives in La Ceiba, Atlántida.

Mario Eduardo used to work in a transportation business. Two and a half years ago he started his own independent business. He offers shipping services transporting things like packages and parcels outside of the city. He also offers moving services and public transport. He wanted to start making his living doing this business because he had experience working in the transportation sector. He says that he has a contract in which he offers his services to a private company and as a result his business is very good and has grown quite a lot. He makes a daily income as well. He works at this business every day.

He has requested his first loan with ODEF for 15,000 lempiras in order to buy parts for the vehicle that is the basis of the work he does and that he uses to offer his services.

Hi goal is to pay for the vehicle that he currently uses and be able to buy another vehicle so that he can expand more in the area.
