Jose Maria's story

José, 34, is married and lives with his wife and two children in a town in the region of San Francisco, Atlántida.

For 5 years, José has run his own business. He is a travelling salesman with his own vehicle and travels around his area selling cabbage, tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, lettuce, onion, cucumber, garlic, chilies and seasonal fruits like rambutan, lychees and others.

The loan that he has requested is the second cycle and is for 25 000 HNL to buy fruit and vegetables to sell. He needs to stock and grow his sales to increase his income.

His goal is to grow his business and see his children graduate and have a better quality of life.
