PROGRESE Micro Credit Program
Started in 1990, PAG through this program aims to improve the income and living conditions of its beneficiaries by providing them with opportunities to start small businesses. Flexible loans are offered at competitive interest rates through solidarity loans to create new local jobs and increase production. Entrepreneurs living in urban areas of Tegucigalpa and rural areas in central and western Honduras benefit from this opportunity to improve their existing businesses or start a new micro business to increase family income and generate sustainable jobs.
PAG currently has four micro credit offices: Flor del Campo (Tegucigalpa), Comayagua, Siguatepeque and Belén Gualcho.
