A loan of $750 helped to buy materials to make mops.


Juan Amilcar's story

Juan Amílcar G. E. is 43 years old. He lives with his wife and two sons in Apopa, San Salvador. Juan makes and sells mops with his wife’s help. He also grows corn with his oldest son and sells it at wholesale. Juan is very responsible and cares about his family’s well being. He has taught his sons the value of work. He is requesting a loan to buy materials to make mops. This is the most profitable business for Juan since it provides daily income and can be sold year round. Corn on the other hand, has a waiting time until it’s ready for sale. Juan hopes to improve his family’s income and to be able to provide for his family.
