G.s El Aterrizaje Group's story

Oscar is a very hardworking man who lives in a community in southern Honduras along with his wife and their two children. He has had a business selling firewood and snacks for the past five years. Oscar sells the items from his home and around his community and other nearby villages. He is requesting the loan to purchase more supplies like beef, cabbage, potatoes, green bananas, chicken, beverages, yucca, lettuce, rice and other items. Oscar hopes that thanks to this loan his sales will increase and will help him out a lot so he can buy more ingredients necessary to keep making his snacks. Oscar and his fellow group members hope to grow their businesses so they can earn a little bit more income and improve the quality of life for themselves and their families a little bit. Oscar's dream is for his business to be one of the best known in the community, and in this way he will be able to continue supporting his family so his children can stay in school and become good people with better opportunities in life. María is 51 years old and has had a small convenience store for the past 10 years. Angélica is 27 years old and has had a business selling refreshments for more than three years.
