Oscar Exequiel's story

Oscar is 37 years old, and he lives in the village of Los Ángeles in the Arizona municipality in Atlántida. He is married and has two daughters, ages 5 and 9. Four years ago Oscar and his wife decided to sell merchandise. Approximately a year and a half ago they set up a mini market in order to also sell food products.

They now do various business activities in order to generate income. The couple takes turns tending to the mini market and selling merchandise like clothes, shoes, low-cost novelty items, and cosmetics, etc. They sell at their house as well as selling in an itinerant manner.

He also does soldering work at his father’s shop when requested.

Oscar is requesting a second loan with ODEF and Kiva for 12,000 lempiras. He will buy a bundle of used clothes and novelty items to increase sales and income in order to be able to give his daughters the best education.
