A loan of $1,075 helped to stock the store with merchandise.

Byron Alexander's story

Bayron, 29, lives with his daughter and housemate in Nueva Frontera, Santa Bárbara. Bayron used to work in agriculture but two years ago decided to open his own grocery store to sell food items like rice, beans, sugar, bread, lard, salt, pills, balls, flour, packaged snacks, soft-drinks, etc. He also has a mill to grind cooked corn for tortillas that generates extra income. He has requested a 21,000 Lempira loan to buy more products to stock the grocery store to increase sales and profits. He will invest profits in coffee growing, home improvements, in the purchase of a motorcycle and in seeing that his family has everything needed every day.
