A loan of $1,000 helped to buy cement, bricks, gravel, sand, etc. for his home and his business.


Santos Luis's story

Santos is 54 years old and lives with his wife and their children in their home in San Lorenzo, which is located in the southern part of Honduras. He buys and sells dirt, sand, gravel, and all types of construction materials. Santos has a large, established customer base and his customers call him and tell him their needs, and he brings them the required items.

Santos is seeking a loan so that he can buy construction materials such as cement, bricks, gravel, sand, etc. for his business and also in order to complete the construction that is currently in progress on his home. He has part of the materials he needs but still needs to buy others.

Santos's dream is to grow his business and to put a small grocery store in his house.
