Ricardo Alberto's story

Ricardo is 44 years old, married, and has three children. He lives with his family in the town of Omoa, Cortes.


Two years ago, Ricardo started his own business of providing secretarial services. He offers color printing, document binding, photocopying, and the sale of pencils and pens. Ricardo previously sold books in addition to providing binding services. He has always enjoyed this activity and has become well-known in the community.


Ricardo is requesting a loan of 10,000 HNL so that he can restock with materials and supplies for his office such as bookbinding materials, reams of paper, photocopier and printer ink, and pens and pencils to sell. This investment will increase his sales and help to attract more customers. His goal is to have a larger and more profitable business where he can generate more income that he needs to provide a better life for his family.
