A loan of $800 helped to buy food products such as grains, dairy products, and sweets to stock his small grocery store..


Jose Armando's story

José is 40 years old, is in a civil union, and has three children. He lives in a neighborhood in the city of San Pedro Sula.

He has had a small grocery store for four years and his helped out by his wife. He started the store to have his own business and improve his quality of life. He sells basic products such as sweets, dairy products, basic grains, and bread, among other things, at his store. The store is located in a central area with a lot of traffic, which has increased his sales profits.

José has requested his first loan of 15,000 lempiras with ODEF to invest in the purchase of food products like grains, dairy products, and sweets. That way he can improve his income and increase his inventory with the purchase. He hopes to stock his store more and be able to give a good education to his children. In the future he wants to start another small grocery store in another central location.
