A loan of $575 helped build an efficient stove.

Antonio José's story

In the back of Antonio José B.'s humble home is a designated space for making arepas. Although he lives about 15 minutes away from Santa Barbara, in the southeast of Antioquia, this does not keep him from selling his product daily in the city and to his neighbors.

At 63 years old, tired of working sporadically as an employee and having little income to support his wife and cover household expenses, he decided to go out on his own to make his living. Currently, his orders have increased which is why he needs a loan to build an efficient stove that will allow him to respond to his customers and to improve his income.
