Gs Col. 20 De Mayo Group's story

Jose is a very honest, responsible person who lives in a community in southern Honduras with his wife. For 13 years he has been running a grocery store out of his home, which is very well-known and visited by neighbors.

Jose is requesting a loan to buy more goods such as corn, shortening, eggs, cheese, soft drinks, doughnuts, rice, beans, bread, coffee, butter, meat, juices and other goods to stock his store. He is hopeful the loan will be of great help since he will be able to have on hand the supplies necessary to meet customer demand for their satisfaction. He also hopes sales will increase considerably so he will have more income to benefit his household and family lifestyle.

Jose wants to increase business and continue supporting his family so he can live without wory and can have a better future with his wife.
