Gs Triunfo Centro No. 3 Group's story

José is a very hardworking, honest, responsible person. He lives with his wife and three children in the town of Triunfo in southern Honduras. His business is a grocery store.

José needs the loan to buy rice, sugar, lard, beans, coffee, bread, cheese, butter, soft-drinks, etc. He expects the loan will lead to increased sales by having more variety and quantity of products available to offer his customers to meet their needs as well as to meet his family’s needs with income earned and to improve their quality of life.
