A loan of $500 helped to purchase ice cream, cones, cups, ice pops, and ice cream pops for his business.


Abel Bonilla's story

Abel is 45 years old, he is married and he has three children that depend on him. He lives in the San Lorenzo neighborhood in southern Honduras.

For the past 10 years he has been selling ice cream for a living making his sales as a street vendor. He goes out in his motorcycle early in the morning every day and visits schools, parks and places where there are children since they are his most loyal customers.

Abel requests 10,000.00 lempiras to purchase ice cream, cones, cups, ice pops and ice cream pops which are the products his clients prefer. With this loan he wishes to continue working and in this way provide a greater income for his family. Abel's dream is to provide a better education for his children and to build a house of his own, since he's living in a family member's house.
