José Edwin's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy corn, fresh cheese, beans, fried pork rinds, loroco, oil, and gas to sell pupusas, and to arrange to buy a cow.
José Edwin's story
Thirty-year-old Jose has a sixth grade primary school education and lives with his common law wife who takes care of the household chores. He sells pupusas on order and also makes a living raising livestock. Jose lives with his wife and their two children, so they are his only dependents. Jose makes a living raising livestock, buying and fattening up cattle, and then sells them after a time. He also works in masonry, a trade he learned not long ago with the help of a friend that taught him. He travels to work by motorcycle; he decided to do that because of the good income he has and because he decided it was the best way he found to help his family. The loan he is requesting is to buy corn, fresh cheese, beans, fried pork rinds, loroco, oil, and gas to sell pupusas, and to arrange to buy a cow. His dream for his family is that his children will study and have careers that will allow them to live with dignity. He and his wife have struggled together a lot, working in order to achieve all their dreams.
