John Henry's story

Small Businessman: John Henry G. G.

John Henry G. G. has worked in a “Cooperativa de Carnes” (Meat Cooperative) for four years. He slaughters animals. His work schedule starts at 6:00 p.m. and ends at 4:00 a.m.

His dream is to work independently in order to be able to be the proprietor of his own business. Then he would have the possibility of sharing more time with his family. To fulfill the dream John Henry needs a loan to buy fertilizer and farming supplies. These are not just to maintain the pea crop that he already has, but they are also to start growing hydrangea.

These supplies are fundamental so that the crops are sustainable. They are also needed so that the winter that strikes the country does not affect his production.

This way John Henry will be able to keep the support of his wife and four children secure. He will also be able to start his development as a businessman in a positive way.
