Jose Geronimo's story

Mr. José is 39 years old and lives in the southern part of Honduras. He lives together with his children and his wife, who supports him in all of his activities. Don José's business is selling new merchandise, an activity he has been doing for the past 6 years in the city where he lives. His business is located in a strategic point in the city center, which makes it very convenient for his customers. Don José needs this loan to purchase shirts, pants, sandals, blouses, jeans, boxer shorts, bikinis, tennis shoes, shoes, flip-flops, etc. He hopes that this loan will increase his sales, because he will buy more products and be able to better satisfy the demands of his regular customers. Don José's plans for the future include continuing to grow his business and to become one of the best in the region. In this way, he will generate more sales and, in a small way, be able to improve the quality of life for himself and his family.
