Santos Melbin's story

Santos is 34 years old, and lives in a common-law relationship with his partner with whom he has two children. He lives in the Azacualpa, Santa Bárbara district. Santos has always been engaged in business. Several years ago, he started buying and selling scrap iron and plastics to recycle. He sells these articles to a recycling plant. He is in his second loan cycle and is requesting a loan of 25,000 Lempiras to purchase scrap iron, aluminum, plastics, iron, copper, and other items in other places to sell to the plant. His dream is to succeed and become a great businessman, have his own company, and provide quality of life to his children and family.
