Jose Santos's story

José is 57 years old and has three children, ages 25, 28 and 30. He has his own house. For seven years, he has made a living selling groceries, such as butter, sugar, coffee, chicken, cold cuts, cheese, soft drinks, juice, and basic grains such as rice and beans. His business is located in his house, where he serves many people who work for a melon farm and come daily to his store. The business is located in the village Espino la Montaña, in the south of Honduras.

José has requested a loan of 10,000 Honduran lempiras to buy groceries, such as oil, coffee, sugar, powdered milk, toilet paper, soft drinks, rice, beans, corn, dairy products, cold cuts, and other products. With his income and the support of this loan, José hopes to move forward and continue improving his business.

His dream is to improve his business and to have the strongest business in his community.
