Abel's story

Sr. Abel is 45 years old, married, and has two dependent children. For the past 10 years, he has managed a business in which he sells frozen treats in the surrounding communities near his home.


Don Abel sells ice cream as a street vendor and transports his products by motorcycle. He purchases his goods with the help of the loans that Prisma has provided. Don Abel lives in the community of San Lorenzo in southern Honduras. He is requesting a loan so that he can buy filled popsicles, cones, and frozen custards (including chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry). Abel sells plenty of these products since the weather in his community is always warm.


With the help of this loan, Don Abel will be able to move forward with his business and gradually improve his quality of life. He will also have more products to offer to his customers. His dream is to build a house and improve his business.
