Santos Reniery's story

Santos is an enterprising, honest and responsible person. He lives with his wife and their 4 children in south Honduras. Santos has had a business selling bread for more than 15 years. The loan he needs is to buy polvorones (a kind of thick cookie), white bread rolls, white bread, doughnuts, e.t.c. With the loan he hopes that his business sales will increase on having more products to sell. Santos' customers are all the people that visit him and also the tourists that come to the area, which is very popular, and thanks to that he hopes his financial situation and that of his family will improve a bit. Santos hopes that in 2 years or so his business will keep growing and getting stronger so it becomes the biggest and most well-known in the area and keeps supporting his family.
