Wilfredo's story

Mr. Wilfredo is a very responsible, honest and hard-working person. He lives with his wife and five children in the region of Choluteca in the south of Honduras. He makes a living through his permanent position in a local shrimping company.

He needs the loan to buy materials such as cement, sheets of corrugated tin roofing, sand, gravel, bricks and nails to make some improvements in his house, such as in the laundry-washing sink, the bathroom and sewage in general. With these changes he hopes to improve his and his family's quality of life.

Mr. Wilfredo lives in an agriculturally intense zone. In the future he hopes to continue making improvements on his home, thanks to the investments that he has made and that he would like to make in the future.

He dreams of watching his children grow up to be good people and with better opportunities in life.
