G.s La Corteza#3 Group's story

Isidro is a very enterprising person. He lives with his wife and children in a community in the south of Honduras. His business for three years has been selling candy.

Isidro needs the loan to buy soft drinks, chicken, beef, bread, potatoes, chayote, bananas, onions, chili peppers, and condiments. With the loan he hopes to increase his sales because he'll have more capital.

Isidro hopes that in a few years his candy business will be positioned as the biggest and best known in the area so he can continue helping his children to become good people for society.

Isidro and his fellow group members hope to be able to satisfy their customers' demand and cover their needs. They also hope to improve their economic situation somewhat and that of their families, and to see this reflected in this investment.

Cesario has bought and sold chickens and grains for nine years.

Erika has had a mini-market for five years.
