Pablo's story

Mr. Pablo, 68, is married and has no dependent children. He lives in the community of San Lorenzo in the southern part of Honduras. He has his own home and for ten years has earned a living with the business of selling hammocks and rope. He works as a traveling salesman and also sells churros, drinks and bread out of his home with the help of his wife.

Don Pablo goes out to the hamlets and cities by bus to visit his customers in grocery stories and other people for whom he brings hammocks and rope for sale. He is seeking the loan for the purchase of rope, hammocks, drinks, churros and bread since he has a number of seasonal orders from his customers. With the support of the loan he hopes to get ahead and resolve his need for financing for the business.

Don Pablo is very happy to keep working with Prisma and his dream is to make improvements to his home.
