Juan's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Hi, my name Juan Carlos and I am originally from a small city called Puerto Vicente in the state of Guerrero in northern Mexico. I grew up in a middle class family of four. My childhood was pleasant but I dreamed of coming to the United States to start my own business. I moved to Oakland in 1998 when I was 18 in search of a better life. Life many immigrants my first job was working in a restaurant as a dishwasher earning $300 a week working full-time. I spent several years working in restaurants and sending money home to my parents. I got married a couple of years after arriving and my wife and I have been raising two kids.
