G.s Los Amigos Group's story

Mario 40 years old, single and does not have any dependent children. He lives in the San Lorenzo community, in southern Honduras. He has his own house, and for the past eight years, he has been working in groceries sales. Mario sells everything related to family needs. His customers appreciate his service and product quality. He is the leader of the “Los Amigos” [The Friends] solidarity group. It is called The Friends because the group is made up of friends and neighbors who get along and are supportive of each other. They are an example of a group that has been working together and their mission is to advance. Mario is requesting a loan to purchase inventory for his grocery store such as: pasta, soap, chicken, sausages, sauces, milk, cheese, rice, sugar, salt etc. He is very pleased with the support of PRISMA and profits they all earn from their businesses which are improving their quality of life. Valentina has a grocery business for more than three years. Santos has been selling firewood for the last ten years. Mario’s dream is to improve his business and also wants his fellow group members to thrive, each of whom is pictured with their respective businesses. San Lorenzo, Honduras - July 2013.
