A loan of $675 helped to buy wood to make doors and sell them.

Mercedes's story

Mr. Mercedes is 51 years old, married and has three children. He lives in San Juan Pueblo, Atlántida. Thirteen years ago, Mr. Mercedes opened a workshop where he makes different woodworks: kitchen furniture, doors, counterframes, tables, chairs, etc. He works full time and says that his work is highly demanded.

With the loans he has received, Mercedes has managed to keep his business going and to make enough to support his family. He requested his seventh loan of 13,000 lempiras [HNL] to buy wood to make doors and sell them, and to finish the orders he has not yet delivered. His goal is to expand his business and start selling in other regions.
