A loan of $425 helped to buy firewood for his business.


Ferdinan's story

Ferdinan is a young, single man aged 22. He has been working for 8 years buying and selling firewood. His sales are done in his home where his customers visit him, since he sells his firewood by the truckload. He sells three days a week, and the other days he works visiting place where they sell him the firewood, which he transports in his vehicle every day, so the truck is his work tool. He lives in the community of Campamento in the south of Honduras.

Ferdinan is asking for 8,000 HNL to buy firewood. With his profits and the support from this loan, Ferdinan hopes to get ahead and continue to improve his income. His dream is to buy a new, better and more economical vehicle.
