Jose Isabel's story

Sr. José, 44 years old, has two children who are dependent on him. He lives with his wife in his own house in the town of San Lorenzo, in the southern part of Honduras. For the past five years he has been selling new clothing. He visits villages by bus and on foot. On weekends he doubles his efforts because he gets up very early to butcher pigs.

With the help of his wife Don José sells his product to customers in small stores and homes. He is requesting a loan to purchase skirts, pants, dresses, blouses, shirts, swim suits, etc. With the help of this loan, Don José hopes to improve his earnings and also his business because if he has more merchandise, he will have better choices to offer his customers.

Don José is very happy to continue working with Prisma. His dream is to own a car to travel in to larger villages in order to sell his products.
