Hector started his
company, Mieles Susa, 15 years ago together with his brother. The company produces wild bee honey, and is situated in the Cundinamarca area,
north of Colombias capital Bogotá.
At the moment they have 14 beehives,
together producing 100 bottles of honey every month. Hectors wife and other family members
collaborate throughout the whole process; from bottling to distribution and
sales. With the loan, Hector would like to buy more beehives to be able to
increase the production of honey. Further, they want to buy a small vehicle to
transport the beehives.
With this loan, 2 extra jobs will be created in the
company. In the future they would like to buy the property where the production
of the honey takes place, to gradually grow the company further. Lendahand and its local partner grant this
loan to Hector, payable in 24 months, to be able to make this ambition reality.
