A loan of $400 helped to buy pots, skillets and saucepans.


Jose Israel's story

José lives in the city of San Miguel with his wife and 2 year-old son José who are financially dependent on him. His business is selling cooking utensils. He learned the business from his father since he used to accompany his father as a child when he worked as a traveling salesman.

José currently needs to invest in his business by purchasing pots, skillets and saucepans. For this reason, he is requesting a loan that will allow him to make his purchases wholesale since the suppliers will provide him with a better price if he buys in bulk.

José's wish is to have a more profitable source of income, to have a strong business and, as regards his family, to watch his son grow up.
