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


A loan helped to buy onions in bulk.


Pablo's story

Pablo is a married 36 year-old man. He has a beautiful family including 3 children who study in the local school. This family lives in the community of Concepcion. Pablo is a man who works hard every day to generate his income. He has a business buying and selling vegetables. He chose this activity because the place where is lives is entirely agricultural, and produces vegetables throughout the year. With this business, he has been able to achieve his goals and objectives for his family. Now, Pablo wants to continue with this business, and he needs to have sufficient working capital. This is why he is requesting a loan to buy onions by the cuerda (a cuerda is 28 square meters of land). This activity is very advantageous, because he buys the vegetables only at the harvest; he doesn't have to do the work to grow them. But to be able to make this purchase he needs to have enough money, because the farmers sell their crops at high prices. Pablo's dream is to generate more income and earnings so that he can continue to invest in his children's education. Also, in the future, he plans to build them a house that is better than the one they have now.
