Carlos René's story

Carlos René, 50, lives in his own home along with his wife. Every day he gets up very early to be able to staff his business which consists of selling fruits and vegetables in a stall he has in a regional market in the city where he lives. It is an area that receives a lot of business, and especially Don Carlos's stall, as he always keeps fresh produce and, in addition, his customers prefer him for being an honest and pleasant man since his priority is the people who demand his products.

He dreams of keeping a stall that is well-stocked with the different fruits and vegetables but he does not have the necessary economic resources to fulfill his dream. Because of this, Don Carlos has made the decision to seek this loan to invest in his business and be able to buy a variety of fruits such as watermelon, other melons, bananas, coconuts, apples, etc., as well as a variety of vegetables: potatoes, yucca, chayotes, carrots, chile peppers, etc. With faith in God he hopes by this means he will bring in better earnings which will allow him to have and give his family a better quality of life.
