Octavio Josue's story

Octavio is 21 years old, He is married, has 2 children, and lives with his wife and children in the town of Quimistán, Santa Bárbara.

He has been selling peanuts for many years. He buys them at wholesale and puts them in bags to sell. He also makes pirulines (sweets made from sugar, water, color, and flavoring) and sells them in the community.

This is the first time he has applied for a loan, which is for 15,000 lempiras. He will use it to buy supplies such as peanuts, sugar, food coloring, bags, and more.

The loan is to supply his business and improve his financial condition. His dream is to have a warehouse and several business stands.
