A loan helped to buy bees from abroad.


Bartolo's story

Bartolo is kind, responsible and disciplined. He lives with his wife and 6 children, ages 3 through 21. As a father, he wants to provide the best for his family, making sure they don't miss anything. In order to make a living, he's been a bee keeper for over 25 years. He has a good production of honey which is really profitable, and he also has a second job as a seasonal worker. He is asking for this loan to buy bees from abroad to produce better quality honey, and therefore, doubling his products, increasing sales and, in time, profits.
