Petronilo's story

Petronilo is 62 years old and lives with his wife in a home located in the south of Honduras. He has been selling food, such as rice, beans, lard, eggs, chicken, spaghetti, salsa, basic grains, and other things for the past 20 years.

Petronilo’s business is located in the city market in his community and it is well visited by all of his customers. He sells Monday through Sunday and is a hardworking, responsible man with a desire to continue working with PRISMA.

Petronilo is asking for a loan in order to buy more products, such as lard, coffee, bread, sugar, rice, beans, salsas, bathroom tissue, etc., so that he can have a greater variety of merchandise and be able to sell more and increase his earnings.
