A loan of $1,000 helped to buy equipment for grilled meat sales.

Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos T. F., 33, lives in Tarija’s 4 de Julio neighborhood. He’s married to Carmen Susana Uztares and they have an 11-month-old son. Juan Carlos works as a medical equipment repairman and in the evenings he works as a waiter in several restaurants in Tarija; he’s been in this line of work for over 10 years.

Juan Carlos tells us that he’d like to have his own grilled meat sales business. He is asking for funds to buy a grill, tables, chairs, etc. so that he can start his business thus increasing his income.

Juan Carlos says that his greatest dream is to be able to provide his wife and son with comfort so that they will be happy. He also tells us that he’d like to use the next loan he requests to buy a piece of property.
