Msme’s  Receiving Personalized Legal Assistance.
Informative Seminar conducted by A Specialist in Legal Assistance for MSME’s and Agropecuaria LAFISE held in Tegucigalpa


Tegucigalpa, June 2008. - The MSME’s participating in the Added Value Project recently attended a series of seminars on issues regarding legal counseling, access to credit, new markets and secured transactions legislation.

The event took place at Hotel Marriott in Tegucigalpa, with the attendance of small entrepreneurs from all over the country.

The presentation began with an introduction from Ms. Daisy Avila, Director of MCA-Honduras Rural Development Project, followed by the presentation of Leticia Carias, the invited speaker who also responded to the many questions placed by the attendees. 


Abogada Leticia Carias habla sobre materia legal aplicada a  MIPYMES.


The afternoon session included a presentation by Octavio Sánchez on the Law of Secured Transactions currently being analyzed in Congress, and a lecture on access to credit opportunities  (Leasing & Factoring).

The matters discussed represent key issues that have been affecting the growth of Honduran agroindustrial MSME, since the MSME’s scarce resources and lack of knowledge on legal matters have prevented them to access the right information as well as opportunities regarding credit and markets.

"We ignore all about laws but this presentation has cleared many doubts we’ve been having for a long time and which we had been unable to discuss with a lawyer, due both to the high costs and to our ignorance on the matter " Rubén Tejada, representative of  Humuya Frutas.
