A loan helped to buy and sell bananas and grocery products.


Miguel's story

Miguel, age 45, has great aspirations in life. He is married and the father of a lovely family of two children, ages 10 and 16 years. They live in a community in the village of Guinelaes.

Like all responsible fathers, Miguel seeks to improve his family's living conditions. For several years, he has worked producing and selling bananas; fortunately, he lives in one of the best zones in the area for growing banana. This goes very well, but also he works buying and selling grocery products.

In order to strengthen his business, Miguel requests a loan to invest in the purchase of more bananas and grocery products. He trusts that he will be able to count on this support, to improve his income.
