Darwin Mauricio's story

Darwin, 26 years old, is single and lives with his sister in the municipality of Quimistán, Santa Barbara. Previously, he helped his father milling corn and 5 years ago he decided to have his own business and earn his own income. He sells ice cream such as vanilla cream, chocolate, ice pops, cones, and topogigios (popsicles) of various flavors. He sells them as a street vendor. Using a cooler and a motorcycle, he offers his products from house to house. The loan that he requests is for 15,000 lempiras to purchase ice cream to sell. His goal is to manage to have a stall to sell his ice cream.
