Octavio's story

Octavio is 66 years old and lives in the municipality of Apartadó. He’s a happy and kind man who is very responsible. He works selling fruit in a little cart, which he rides on through the streets of his town. He started this business 10 years ago because his family’s economic situation wasn’t good, and he wanted to find a better income to help them. He has always been very caring, and his great spirit has helped him become a great entrepreneur. He lives in a post-conflict town, so it hasn’t been easy, but he’s a resilient and strong man who won’t stop protecting his family.

He wants to improve his business, so he’s asking for a loan to buy a new and better cart so he can work better, and to buy more lemons to increase his sales.
