José De La Cruz's story

Jose is 63 years old, single and lives in the municipality of Azacualpa, Santa Bárbara together with his three children. Don Jose generates his income from his own business. Previously he worked in transportation with a school bus. More than three years ago he decided to devote himself to selling purified water in large bottles and bags. He sells door-to-door. He buys and distributes the products to individuals and stores using a motorcycle for delivery. He has requested a second loan for 10,000 Lempiras, with which he will buy water in bottles and bags to increase his stock and increase sales. His goal is to eventually form a small business in water distribution in order to generate income for his family. He is very grateful for the support provided.
