A loan of $725 helped to purchase ingredients and to pay for tuition.


Jans Steven's story

Jans Steven (seen here in the photograph) is 20 years old and he lives with his mother in the city of Merced-Comas. He is single and he is on his fourth term in a cooking college. In order to cover his personal expenses sometimes he helps his uncle attend to the slot machine located near his house. One of Jans' greatest dreams it to finish his schooling and to have his own restaurant that caters to tourists.

This loan will be used to purchase ingredients and to cover his monthly tuition bills. His mother supports him as much as she can with the school expenses but it is not enough. She sells natural health products. Jans is very appreciative of the loan because it gives him the opportunity to stay in school.
