Transito is 34 years old, married, and has five children. He has been selling china, wallets, shoes, and other products for two years. He used to sell watermelon and vegetables. He buys some of his merchandise two hours away from his home.
He will use the money from this loan through Fundación Campo to buy shoes, wallets, sandals, china, and other things such as pants or shirts. This will allow him to increase his number of products that he can offer to his customers and have a greater earning opportunity. He wants to use his earnings to buy appliances for his home, since he doesn’t have any, and provide his children the opportunity to become professionals.
