Eddy Geovany's story

Eddy, 24, is in a common law marriage with his wife, with whom he has one son. They live in the city of San Pedro Sula. Previously, he painted houses and buildings, but because he needed more money he and his wife decided to open up a food business. They have been at it for over a year, selling meals like fried chicken with plantains, pork chops, grilled meat, baleadas [tortillas with beans and fillings], etc. They set up business every day with tents on the side of the road.

He has asked for a loan of 12,000 Lempiras to buy furniture for the business like plastic tables, chairs and other things. WIth this investment they can improve the image of the business and provide their customers with better service. His goal is to grow the business and have several locations in the city.
