Juan's story

Juan is well known in his community and his a very hard worker. He is single and does not have any children but he is an exemplary brother. He and his mother care for his 4 brothers. He grows plantains, his customer base is extremely local and his competition is growing. Juan's current incomes supports his family and allows them to survive, since his mother is older and unable to work.

This is the first time Juan has requested a loan, which he will use to buy pineapple plants in order to diversify his products. In this way he hopes to increase his income so that he can improve his family's life.
