A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fruit.

Oscar Eduardo's story

Oscar, 50, is a man who wishes the best for his family; he started working while still very young helping his uncle. When he became an adult he affiliated himself with the central market selling fruit and vegetables.

He starts work very early. First he goes out to make his purchases for his business and then he opens up for customers in the market at 6am and goes until noon. His wife also works in the market selling meals.

He wants to use the loan to increase his stock buying 16 cases of apples, 18 cases of pears and 12 cases of passion fruit to increase profits. He hopes to stay in business and that his son and wife enjoy good health.
