Mario Roberto's story

Mario is 47 years old, is single, and lives with her mother and brother in the city of Puerto Cortes. He worked in a factory for many years but when he found himself out of work, he decided with his mother to start a grocery store where he sells basic grains, meat, snacks, bread, churros, pasta, cleaning products, chicken, etc.

He is asking for a second loan for 20,000 lempiras to use to buy basic grains, meat, soft drinks, sugar, flour, lard, eggs, condiments, bread, etc. In this way, he will be able to stock up his store and sell his goods during this busy season. His goals include helping his business grow and helping his family.
