Juan Carlos's story

Juan is 32 years old. He is a very hardworking and responsible person. He lives with his mother and his brothers in a community of Choluteca in the south of Honduras. Juan’s business is selling new clothes. He needs the loan to purchase pants, shirts, blouses, swimming trunks, skirts, dresses, sandals, underwear, bras and caps. With the loan, young Juan hopes to have more merchandise to increase his sales and in this way satisfy the demand of his customers who visit him daily. With the income that he obtains he hopes to improve his lifestyle and that of his family a little bit. In the future, he hopes that his business grows to become a mobile store and with this continue supporting his family and providing better opportunities for his brothers.
