A loan of $300 helped buy a wide variety of fruit and vegetables.

Felix's story

57-year old Félix lives with his common-law wife and four children in the municipality of Santa Cruz de Yojoa. He has a business selling fruit and vegetables which he started three years ago as he wanted an income-generating business of his own. It is located in a small space in the centre of the market where customers can come see the produce.

Félix sells many types of fresh fruit and vegetables such as tomatoes, chilli peppers, cabbage, onions, radishes, yucca, young maize, potatoes, lemons, oranges, bananas, and mangoes. His stall is open every day as his customers need these products on a daily basis. He is now seeking his fourth loan of 6,000 lempiras to buy fresh fruit and vegetables like tomatoes, cabbage, potatoes, yucca, chilli peppers, bananas, oranges, and mangoes. He believes that the loan will help him increase sales and provide better service.

His goals are to continue growing his business, make more sales, and have permanent premises in good repair.
