Gs 16 De Abril Group's story

Ricardo is 40 years old and has three children. His main activity is selling seasonal fruit and oven-baked bread. He has six years of experience managing his business and counts on his wife's support. Ricardo is requesting the loan in order to purchase fruit, such as oranges, tangerines, avocados, pineapple, plums, mangoes, watermelon, melon, and other products to make oven-baked bread, so that he can offer his customers good service. Since his business is located on the main street in the community where he lives, this makes sales easier by creating a broader customer base. Ricardo also sells his products on the street, going out on his bicycle to several communities in the area. He is a very hard worker and has found a way to move forward with his business, which has been his only source of income. The support afforded by this loan will help Ricardo have a better business so that he can earn a better income to cover home expenses and give his family a better quality of life. Ricardo's dream is to have a motorcycle so that he can sell more products in other communities. Sara works selling mainly the food "nacatamales." Antonio works selling mainly basic grains, rice, and beans. He has twelve years of experience and has three children. Danli El Paraíso, Honduras - April, 2012
