Gs Cedeño 4 Group's story

José, 37, lives in south Honduras with his two children and his wife who backs him up in all his commitments. He’s been working in his community for 20 years. He works from place to place and also from home since he has customers that visit him at home and others he delivers to at their respective places of business.

José needs the loan to buy clams, fish and a drag-net to fish. He expected effect from the loan is that his sales will grow considerably since he will buy enough products to fill each one of his customer orders because he has much demand due to the quality of his products.

José’s future plan is to continue growing in his own business as well as to generate higher income to provide a better education for his children and also to have a better quality of life.

Olivia and María work full-time in their seafood business which is their source of income.
