A loan of $650 helped to purchase beef tripe and slices of pork to make and sell pork rinds.

Marcelino's story

Don Marcelino is 62 years old, married and looks after three children. He lives in the town of Omoa, Cortes. He has had a business selling tripe and pork rinds for two years. He has decided to seek a third loan, this time for 13,000 lempiras, which he will invest in the purchase of beef tripe and pork slices to make and sell pork rinds.

This loan will help his business to grow and he will have capital to work with. His objective is to feed and clothe his family, and also to increase his business and increase his income.
