Juan Manuel's story

Juan is 44 years old. He is the father of two children and lives in a home he owns with his wife in the community of San Lorenzo in southern Honduras. For 2 years he has worked in the business of selling milk and fruit. He also works as a bricklayer.

Juan is asking for a loan of 8,000.00 lempiras to buy fertilizer, cement and blocks that he needs to build a room for his children. With the support of this loan, Juan wants to have the financing he needs to complete his project and stay on in his business.

What Juan wants is to improve his home and have good cattle so he can generate good income with milk production.
