A loan of $375 helped to buy purified water to sell.

José De La Cruz's story

Jose is 62 years old and single. He lives with his three children in the municipality of Azacualpa, Santa Bárbara. He has his own business activity in order to generate income.

He used to work in transportation with a school bus. Three years ago he decided to devote himself to selling purified water in large bottles and in bags.

He sells door-to-door. He buys and distributes the product from individuals and grocery stores. He uses a motorcycle for the delivery.

He will use the requested loan for 7,000 lempiras to buy water in order to increase his inventory and increase sales.

He has a plan to become a small business water distributor in order to generate income for his family.
