A loan of $650 helped to buy parts for a milling machine.


Jose Sipriano's story

Señor Jose D., age 55, lives in the San Francisco neighbourhood in the city of Choluteca. His business is based on his machine for grinding corn, and most of the people in his neighbourhood use his service. He gets up every day at 4am so that he can fill all his orders for maize to be milled.

Jose is a very hard working, responsible and honourable man, who puts in a lot of effort to continue growing his business. He will use the loan to pay for parts to maintain the machine's motor. Right now he has a lot of demand for his services, because people need a lot of maize flour at the moment to make nacatamales (a festive local dish).
