Benancio Esteban's story

Benancio, 51, lives with his son in the community of Nacaome, in south of Honduras. He sells basic grocery items, like rice, beans, lard, eggs, refreshments, etc. Benancio's been running this business for many years now. He owns his house and his store is located in it. His clients are all the people who come to visit him. He's a respectful, hard-working man. Benancio is requesting a loan of 8,000.00 to buy more grocery items, like sugar, beans, cheese, coffee, bread, butter and rice. He'd like to stock up to have more products for sale in his store. His desire is to get ahead and support his son's studies. Benancio's dream is to expand his grocery store and start selling soft drinks.
