Jose Gilberto's story

Jose, age 41, lives in a village in the Tela municipality in Atlántida. He lives with his wife and their three children. Jose’s previous business activity was agriculture. Six years ago he decided to establish his own business, a grocery store, in order to generate greater income for the household.

He and his wife run the grocery store, and they wait on their customers all day. In order to keep his business stocked he has decided to request another loan for 27,000 lempiras. He will buy beans, rice, flour, sugar, salt, bread, shortening, meat, soft drinks, and dairy products.

He has managed four loans, counting this one. They have helped him increase his inventory and his clientele. His goal is to make his business grow more and to have it generate good income so that he can support his children’s education.
