Hector David's story

Hector, 30, lives in a common-law marriage with his wife. He has four children and lives in the municipality of Choloma, Cortes. He previously worked in a maquila [factory in a free-trade zone], and when he lost his job, he opened his own workshop repairing and making shoes for men, women, and children. He has applied for four loans to invest in his business. Currently, he is asking for another 15,000 lempiras and he will invest it in materials for repairing and making shoes, such as leather, thread, glue, insoles, etc. This loan will help him to improve his inventory and that way he will have increased production and better earnings. His goal is for his children to have a better education and for his business to improve.
