Zip Choluteca is located in the sector called "Ciudad Valcanes," an area that is approximately 516 acres, and will have an industrial and commercial area, a bilingual school, and 250 houses for which credit will be made available to workers from the Zone.
At an investment of $5 million the first stage of the Honduras Pacific Free Zone, which will host the textile factories, was inaugurated.
Due to lack of orders from the US, the company shut down operations, laying-off 500 employees.
With the closing of enterprises during 2008 and so far in 2009, 20 thousand people were left unemployed.
The textile and apparel “maquila” will be located in the “Zip Calpules” field, in San Pedro Sula.
