Antonio's story

Señor Antonio is a very hard-working and responsible person. He lives in a community in the south of Honduras, along with his wife and children. His business for six years has been providing milling service.

Don Antonio has his business in the house where he lives, and thanks to the fact that it is a very central location, he has many customers. He needs the loan to buy the tools to provide the necessary maintenance to his mill.

Don Antonio hopes that with the loan his business will function in the best way and thus increase his income, and thanks to this he will be able to improve his quality of life and that of his family a little bit, with the increase in the household income.

Don Antonio hopes in the short term to make his business grow and to buy another mill, to thus be able to continue helping his family with whatever economic problems arise.
