A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase meat and a freezer to help grow his butcher business.

Geovin Andres's story

Geovin is 27 years old and works as a butcher in the market. He lives with his wife and two children ages 9 and 3, in an urban area called Orquideas, which means Orchids. The town was named for the discovery of its many orchids and you'll find a park full of the flowers there. Geovin's mother taught him about the business and how to buy meat at the best prices. When she became ill, Geovin took charge of the business. He's been running the small butcher's shop for 8 years, working on his own from very early morning when he buys the meat, until the end of the day when the market closes. Geovin aspires to grow his business into a large shop. For that he not only needs to continue working hard, but also needs capital to invest. He is requesting a loan to purchase more meat, as well as a freezer. In the next 5 years, he would like to be able to purchase a car so that he can transport the meat more easily.
