A loan of $775 helped a member to buy corn, sorghum, beans and rice for his business.


G.s El Jobo Group's story

60-year-old Pedro lives with his wife in their home which is located in a community in San Lorenzo, in the south of Honduras. His business is selling basic grains such as rice, beans, sorghum and corn.

Pedro grows these crops but, as he sells a lot during the summer, he has to buy more when he runs out. He makes his sales Monday through Sunday and has quite a lot of customers. Most of the ladies who buy from him sell tortillas in Nacaome market.

Pedro and his fellow group members would like to make progress in their businesses and improve their families' quality of life a little.

Irma has a business selling groceries and also sells lotions. Omar sells groceries and lots of different food products. Each member of the group has their own business.
