Amílcar Efraín's story

Amilcar, 56, is married and has 2 children. He lives in a community in the municipality of La Masica, in the department of Atlantida.

Previously, Amilcar sold clothing and cosmetics, but 5 years ago he decided to set up a grocery store where he could sell staple consumer products.

At this time, he has requested a loan of 6,000 Honduran lempiras, which he plans to use to buy corn, beans, sugar, rice, meat, dairy products, butter, medicines and hygiene products.

With this financial support, he will be able to stock up his store and offer a greater variety of products to his customers.

Amilcar's goal is to reinvest the profits he obtains so that he can grow his business.
