Juan Baustista's story

Juan is 41 years old. He lives with his wife and has two children who are dependent on him. He lives in the community of San Lorenzo, in a valley in southern Honduras.

Juan has his own house, and for eight years he has worked selling clothing as a mobile vendor. His customers prefer buying from him because of his good service. He goes to his customers' homes and offers them the clothing they need.

To make his sales, Juan goes out on his motorcycle to towns and neighborhoods outside his community. He is an enterprising man with the desire to help his family get ahead.

Juan is requesting the loan to buy underwear, bras, socks, skirts, dresses, blouses and pants. He has several orders for clothing for the Mother's Day season. With the help of the loan he will meet his need for financing.

Juan is a good client who wants to keep working with Prisma. His dream is to improve his business.
