A loan of $825 helped to buy basic staples to stock his store.

Clifton's story

Clifton, 46, is married living with his spouse in the municipality of Tela, Atlántida. Clifton has always been a merchant. For a time he sold clothes and three years ago decided to open a small grocery store selling foodstuffs and miscellany. He sells grocery items (basic grains, canned goods, cleaning supplies, eggs, candy, meat, dairy products, sandals, shaving cream, shampoo, etc.), clothes, bicycle spare parts, animal feed and others.

Clifton has requested a 16,000 Lempira loan to stock his store with groceries, basic grains and bicycle spare parts. With this investment he’ll increase his inventory and sales. His plans are to become a grocery warehouse and to open a bicycle repair shop since it’s a zone where bicycles are widely used as a means of transportation and he’ll be able to improve his income and his family’s quality of life this way.
