Ovidio Antonio's story

Ovidio, 33, is single living in a community in the municipality of La Másica, Atlántida Department. He works selling foodstuffs in a grocery store he’s had for three years. He decided to start this business due to the lack of employment; he used to work as a day laborer on cattle ranches. He’s currently asking for a 10,000 Lempira loan to buy analgesics, corn, beans, rice, lard, bread, condiments, cleaning and hygiene supplies, soft-drinks and snacks. He hopes to continue growing in business offering a wider variety of goods in order to improve profits.
