A loan helped to buy and sell bananas.


Francisco's story

Francisco is a married man and is 42 years of age. He lives together with his family in the hamlet of Patzité.

With care and courage, Francisco carries out his business, which is the purchase and sale of bananas at wholesale. Thanks to this business, Francisco has improved his income. He has approximately 15 years of experience with this activity.

With the desire of continuing to inject capital into his business as well as continuing to acquire customers, Francisco requests a loan to invest in the purchase and sale of bananas. He sees this new investment with a positive outlook, since it is a fruit that is much sold in the market.
