Jorge Eliecer's story

Jorge, 61, worked for more than 14 years as a watchman. When he became unemployed due to personnel cuts, he needed to find a source of income to support his family so he decided to under employ himself and start selling ‘buñuelos’ [deep-fried flour tortillas] near his house. Currently, he sets up at a school entrance to sell his product and generate income that will make it possible for him to provide his family with a proper life. His greatest dream is to own a house to improve quality of life. He’s asking for a loan to invest in his food cart’s improvement and to buy raw materials to increase his sales.
