A loan of $275 helped to stock his retail hammock business.

Ibrahan's story

Sr. Ibrahan, 45, lives in San Lorenzo, a town in southern Honduras, with his wife and son. He has operated a retail hammocks business for 15 years. He sells various sizes of hammocks made from linen and silk. He lives near the Panamerican Highway and operates the business from his house. His customers are mostly local people.
Don Ibrahan is applying for a loan that he will use to buy different kinds of linen, silk and canvas hammocks. He wants to stock the hammocks from a wholesaleer so that he keep the extra margin.
Don Ibrahan says that the loan will provide the financing that he needs for the business and ultimately increase his income.
For the future, Don Ibrahan wants to buy a vehicle that he can use to transport his hammocks to wherever he needs to carry them.
