Jose Cruz's story

Jose is 42 years old. He is married and has 8 children and lives with his family in the city of Choloma, Cortes.

Six years ago, Jose established a small grocery store business. This has been his source of income to support his family. He started this business with his own money and with the help of his wife. He says that sales are stable because the products he puts out every day sell and are indispensable for homes. He has asked for his fourth loan, which is for 21,000 lempiras. He needs it to stock up on products such as flour, beans, rice, lard, sugar, eggs, bread, dairy products, chicken, beverages, etc. He thinks that making this investment will help him to earn more income and help his family financially.

The goal is to keep investing in his business to keep it stable.
