A loan helped to purchase sugar, rice, coffee, oil, pastries, beverages, and snacks to stock his store.


José Heriberto's story

Jose is 27 years old. He lives with his partner and his son in a house that they rent in the community. His partner works at a diner near their house in the morning. She takes the child to work since they don’t have anyone to take care of him.

Jose works as an employee at a pyrotechnic workshop making fireworks and explosive rockets, which he sells when they celebrate patronage festivals, processions, or other extravagant events. In addition, he manages a small store, with his partner, in his house. He works there in the morning, and his partner works in the afternoon, when she gets home.

He needs the loan to purchase sugar, rice, coffee, oil, pastries, beverages, and snacks to stock the store. His plans are to open his own pyrotechnic products workshop since he already has the experience.
