Emilson Alexander's story

Emilson, 34, is married and has 3 children. He lives with his family in a neighborhood of La Lima Cortes. Previously, Emilson was working as a school bus driver, but because he needed to earn more income he started up a grocery store 3 months ago where he sells basic consumer products. He now rents his bus to another person who transports the students, and he and his wife tend to the store. He is selling staple grains, sugar, eggs, churros, sweets, cereals, bread, cookies, canned goods, cleaning products, home products, etc. He is requesting his 3rd loan from ODEF for 15,000 Honduran lempiras to buy food products, cleaning products and home goods for his store. With this loan, he will be able to offer a variety of products to his customers. His dream is to make his business long-lasting and prosperous so that he can help his family. He is very pleased with the loans, because they have helped him a lot to obtain an income for his family. He is a person who is very responsible with his debts; he paid off his previous Kiva loan on time.
