Eugenio's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped a Mexican immigrant and cancer survivor create logo and improve packaging of my Bolis (ice pops) and Frituras (Chips).


Eugenio's story

My name is Eugenio Flores I was born Veracruz Mexico. I moved alone to the United States in 2002, to find a better future for my children in Mexico. I worked in landscaping for 5 years when I was detected with multiple myeloma cancer in 2012 on my right leg. The cancer was removed from my leg in 2013, but the cancer spread to other parts of my body. On April 7th 2016 I was able to get a bone marrow transplant, to remove some of the cancer in my body. As of now I feel much better and I am still going through chemotherapy. Due to my cancer treament, I had to figure out how to support my financial needs, so I started selling Ice pops and Frituras in 2016.
