A loan of $1,000 helped to buy new disks and repair the the hopper of his mill, and to buy paint as he needs to paint it.


José Antonio's story

José is married and has six children. His wife takes care of the home. Seven people depend on him. He has had a mill for 10 years. He set it up after noticing that in the place he lives there was no milling service, and the residents were having to travel very far to mill. Accordingly, he made the effort and bought a mill. His wife and children are also involved in the work.

Previously he worked in agriculture. He really needs the help of a loan to buy new disks and repair the hopper of his mill. He will also buy paint as he needs to paint it. His dream is that God gives him a long life in which to continue working, and to fight to leave a humble inheritance for his children so that they have a place to live.
