People in Honduras use the lempira as their money. It is broken down into 100 centavos.
It was named after the 16th-century cacique Lempira, who was a ruler of the indigenous Lenca people. In Honduran folklore, he is known for leading the resistance of the indigenous people against the Spanish conquistador forces. He is a national hero and is on both the 1 lempira note and the 20 and 50 centavos coins because he is so important to the country.
