Jose Luciano's story

José is a 50 year married man with two dependent children, ages 12 and 15. He lives in the community of San Lorenzo in southern Honduras. He owns his own home and for the past 22 years, he has been a fisherman who sells all varieties of fish. His customers are people that are engaged in fish sales. He also sells soft drinks at his home. He arises early in the morning to fish in the sea near his home. He has a fishing boat and with this business, he has gotten his family ahead. He is requesting the loan to purchase sea bass, sardines, shrimp, and fresh fish to gut and dry because he has several orders for dried fish. With the help of this loan, he hopes to resolve his financing needs. José is very happy to continue working with PRISMA, and his dream is to improve his home.
