A loan of $425 helped purchasing firewood.

Juan Francisco's story

Mr. Francisco G. sells firewood. He also grows coffee beans, but his main business is the sale of firewood. He has been doing that for 5 years. He is married with 2 children who depend on him. With his income, he has been able to help his family by paying for their food, school expenses and medical expenses. The area in which Mr. G. lives is a place with a cool climate and many forests. The sale of firewood in this place is very common because it is needed for both domestic and industrial use. He needs to buy more wood so he can increase his profits and thus provide better for his children.
