Hector Rolando's story

Don Héctor is 55, married, and the father of four children. He lives in the town of Roatán, where he worked as a bus driver. Three years ago, Don Héctor opened a small shop where he sells staple grains, meat, soft drinks, dairy products, canned goods, soap, sugar, butter, and other groceries. Three previous loans have allowed Don Héctor to keep his business stable, and he's now applied for a fourth loan. He will use the loan funds, 17,000 Lempiras, to purchase goods to stock his store: staple grains, meat, dairy products, soft drinks, and other essential items. Don Héctor plans to be a small businessman and make his store into something his family will always be able to rely on. He hopes the store can eventually be a mini-market or even a supermarket.
