Miguel Angel's story

Miguel, 50, is married and has a daughter. He lives in Choloma, Cortes. He worked for several years in a caretaking company, but when he lost his job, he decided to open up his own convenience store. He sells basic household necessities such as basic grains, sugar, butter, coffee, bread, soft drinks, churros (fried dough), sanitary products and other things. He started the business in his house three years ago. He is in his third cycle of loans; he is asking for 25,000 lempiras, which he will use to stock up on more products such as meat, soft drinks, basic grains, sugar, coffee, churros, eggs, butter, and other groceries such as soap, toilet paper, batteries, tablets, etc.
