Juan Humberto's story

Mr. Juan Humberto M. works selling corn seed which is ground to make flour for corn tortillas. He has a lot of customers since the majority make tortillas. Juan and his wife are in charge of keeping this small business project alive. It’s in a room in their house in the town of Trojes. Mr. M. sells door to door. They have three children. Only one is their dependent and she is a university teaching assistant in nursing. He travels to places where they sell the seed at a low cost and this way can offer a better price to his clientele. He and his wife tend to them with care and dedication. Juan also grows coffee which generates more income for the well being of his family. He is applying for the loan to invest it in his business since at the moment he doesn't have enough working capital.
