A loan of $250 helped to buy oranges, sugar, and bags, to make juices; and to buy blocks and bars to make a start on building his house.


Ever Orlando's story

Ever is 42 years old, married and lives with his wife, with whom he has three children. They live in the Tela municipality of Atlántida. Ever worked for a number of years with a local organisation but, after losing his job, he decided to start his own business selling fruit juices, and sweets, such as churros and other items. Ever is applying for a loan of 5000 Lempira which he will use to buy oranges, sugar, and bags, to make juices. He will also buy blocks and bars to make a start on building his house. Ever's plan is to continue making a profit so that he can finish his house and stop renting. He also wants to continue running his business.
