A loan helped to purchase a freezer to stock up on foods.


Jose Joaquin's story

Jose, age 70, works raising fowl. He has always been entrepreneurial, self-taught, and curious; he hopes to do something significant in his life. Thanks to this, today he has his own business. He is a producer and seller; a very versatile person who, in the face of market difficulties and personal difficulties, looks to overcome. In the future he wants to have a great business. He is an active and enterprising man who is dedicated to his work.

He is requesting the loan with interest in investing it in the purchase of a freezer. Jose dreams of making his business profitable, which will give him the opportunity to continue financially supporting his family and guarantee favorable stability to share with his loved ones.
