San Miguel Petapa, Guatemala / Food Production/Sales

A loan of $775 helped to buy plantains for making 'plataninas' (plantain chips).


Jonny Manolo's story

Manolo is 35 years old, married, and has two children aged 4 and 7. He tells us that his plantain chip business has grown. He started his business two years ago, working with a loan, with a banana company. He finished paying back and started working with his own capital. By saving up, he was able to buy a car and hire two people to help him. Manolo is requesting a loan to invest in his business as he has more orders and doesn't have enough capital to buy supplies.
