A loan of $1,225 helped to buy food products, cleaning products, and wooden shelving.

Rigoberto's story

Rigoberto, age 47, has two children. He lives with his wife and a stepson in the San Luis Comayagua municipality. Rigoberto was abroad for several years. He then returned to be with his family. Six months ago he decided to establish his own business. He established a grocery store to sell food products. He sells sugar, beans, rice, shortening, soap, Pampers, churros, meat, canned goods, over the counter pills, and others.

He wants to use the requested 24,000 lempiras to stock the business. He will do this in order to increase sales and so that the customers will find everything they need in one place. He also wants to use the loan to buy wooden shelves to put out more products to sell. His goal is to manage to survive in the business and to make it grow little by little.
