A loan of $550 helped to buy more chickens and fish.


Emilio's story

Emilio, 39, is married to Nelia, 37, with whom he has four children. They live together in their own house located in the tropical Pichari jungle. Emilio is an ambitious man; his greatest motivation is his children. He works selling fish and chicken in faraway communities. His work tool is a motorcycle that he uses to get from town to town.

He gets up at 4am and with the same enthusiasm and desire carries out his business selling food supplies. In the future, he’d like to have a refrigerated truck to transport his products in larger quantities and in better conditions so that he can earn much more than he currently does.

This is his first loan and Emilio commits to being very punctual with his installment payments. He also hopes that all of you will collaborate with him so that he can access these loans. Emilio will use the 1500 to buy more products to sell more variety and quality to his customers.
