Lucio's story

Lucio lives in San Miguel. He is a fruit and vegetable vendor. He lives with his wife and his children, a three-year-old and a newborn baby. Lucio's business is selling fruits and vegetables as a mobile vendor. He uses a bicycle cart for transportation.

He would like to work hard in this business, and he is looking to invest in it through a loan to buy seasonal fruits such as melons and mangos, as well as vegetables such as potatoes and carrots. This will be a great help for him, since he will have a greater availability of products to offer his customers, allowing him to increase his sales.

His goal is to work hard to make progress wtih his business and to expand his merchandise so that someday he can buy a vehicle to transport himself and his products.
