Josue Daniel's story

Josué is a very honest and responsible person. He lives in a community in the south of Honduras with his wife and their two children. He has had a small grocery store business for three years that is very popular and well-known among his neighbors in his community.

Josué is asking for the loan to buy more products such as corn, oil, eggs, cheese, drinks, churros, rice, beans, bread, coffee, butter, meat, juices, etc., which he needs to stock his business with more products.

Josué hopes that the loan will serve as a lot of help, as he will have the supplies necessary to cover his customers' demands and thus satisfy their needs. He likewise hopes that his sales increase; in this way he would have more earnings to benefit his family's lifestyle.

Josué hopes to grow his business and keep supporting his children so that they achieve their goals and dreams as well as ensuring that they are able to study in order to have greater opportunities in life.
