The Success of Rafael Perez from Honduras
Rafael Perez has the spirit of a true entrepreneur. He is ambitious and is always looking for ways to grow his business. He lives in Potrerillos, Honduras close to the border of El Salvador. Rafael saw an opportunity to purchase medicines in El Salvador and sell them in the mountain regions near his home. He recognized the need and was eager to start this business venture, but he needed the capital to get his business up and running. That is when Rafael began a business relationship with Mentors Honduras.
After completing a few loan cycles, Rafael was able to build and expand his medicine business, enlarge his home, and start two new businesses. Rafael now makes nameplates for homes and graves, and his wife is baking and selling bread to their neighbors and surrounding villages.
Rafael says with zeal, “I have been favored through Mentors Honduras. It has been a great blessing in my life and for my wife and daughter. Every time I go for a new loan, I feel confident. My mentors believe in me and honor me with their trust. I feel that the businesses I start with Mentors Honduras money will be successful. I have enough that I try to share what I have learned with others.”
