Success Highlights

There are approximately 500,000 Hondurans who have been driven by need to start small informal businesses from home or on the streets in order to generate income to provide for their families. In order to grow or sustain their small businesses, every entrepreneur needs capital. Studies show that 70% of Honduran small and medium enterprises have never received credit. 

Journey with IDH to witness firsthand how we are walking alongside Honduran families in the poorest sectors of society to help them achieve their dreams. Through the provision of loans, technical assistance and financial education, our clients are developing sustainable businesses and creating holistic change in their lives.
