Juan Carlos's story

Sr. Juan has a business selling seasonal fruits (apples, apricots pears, plums etc.). He is currently selling Tarijan grapes, a business that is very well managed. He sells the fruit in the populous commercial district of Villa Fátima. He travels there daily to sell his produce on one of the busiest streets; it has a lot of transport offices and a bus stop that goes to Los Yungas (the warm valleys of Bolivia). His family is made up of himself, his wife, who is in the same line of work as Sr. Juan, and three school-aged children. Sr. Juan is a responsable, grateful and enterprising person. The purpose of the loan he has requested is to stock up on seasonal fruit to sell so that he can get ahead and improve his quality of life.
