Wilfredo's story

Wilfredo is 50 years old. For more than 30 years he has had a small workshop making and selling belts, offering his customers quality work. It is located in his home, and he has two employees who help him make the belts.

He goes to sell in Olancho, Choluteca and Comayagua, where he already has several customers such as stores that buy his product at wholesale.

He works Monday to Saturday, as Sunday he devotes to going to church. His work begins at 8:00 a.m. and goes until 5:00 p.m.

Thanks to the income he has earned in his business, he has managed to support his children and carry out improvements to his home.

Wilfredo is applying for a loan in the amount of 25,000 lempiras, in order to invest it in the purchase of leather, buckles, clasps, thread, glue and lining. He hopes to have the support of the institution in stocking his business.

His plan for the future is to have a strong and profitable business so that he can support his family.
