A loan of $1,275 helped to buy stock merchandise for his store.

Luis Alonzo's story

Luis, 38, lives with his wife and four children in the Cofradía sector in San Pedro Sula municipality. Luis used to work for a private firm and when he became unemployed he and his wife decided to open a grocery store of their own. He’s been selling basic staples like meat, canned goods, rice, beans, lard, condiments, pasta, pills, soft-drinks, bread, tortillas, flour, sugar and other groceries for a year and a half.

Luis wants to better stock his store because he has a good clientele and has asked for a 25,000 Lempira loan to buy meat, canned goods, soft-drinks, juices, eggs, lard, sugar, flour, basic grains and other grocery items. This investment will help him increase his inventory and satisfy customers. His goal is to continue working and improving the business for his family’s wellbeing.
