Nelson's story

Nelson is 41 years old and has a son who depends on him. He lives with his wife in their home, located in the community of San Lorenzo in southern Honduras. He has been in the business of selling footwear for a year.

Nelson's customers are friends and neighbors who visit him at his shop. He and his wife also go out to the villages and rural settlements neighboring their community to sell this product.

Nelson is requesting a loan to buy men's and women's sandals, shoes, sport shoes, etc. With the help of the loan, he intends to stock his business a bit more, and thereby obtain more income, which will help him to improve his quality of life. Nelson's dream is to improve his house.
