A loan of $375 helped to buy cases of disposable razors, superglue, and other items to sell.


Leonardo's story

Leonardo is 25 years old and married. He lives with his wife in a suburban neighborhood of San Pedro Sula. For three years Leonardo has been selling merchandise like disposable razors, superglue, tooth brushes, school glue, batteries, and other items.

He used to work as a bus driver, but he decided to establish his own business. He sells in an itinerant manner, and he distributes the products by the case and by the dozen.

He wants to use the requested loan for 7000 lempiras to stock his inventory. He will buy products like disposable razors, superglue, and other items that he needs to keep in stock. His plan is to establish the business in a fixed location in his house. He is grateful for the support that was given.
