Jorge Alberto's story

Don Jorge is 61 years old, married, and lives in the town of Yoro with his wife and son. He worked at a governmental agency for several years, but later lost his job. Four years ago, Don Jorge started his own business activities. He purchased a grain mill for grinding corn used to make tortillas and provides this service to the community. Don Jorge also set up a candy stand near his house where he sells sweets, gum, snack foods, peanuts, candy dispensers, cookies, and other items. His wife manages the rental of the grain mill for grinding corn.

Don Jorge has obtained several loans from ODEF. He is currently requesting his fourth loan in the amount of 16,000 HNL. The money will be used to restock his business with candy, snack foods, cookies, and other items so that he can increase his sales and grow his business. One of his goals is to establish a convenience store where he can sell food products.
