Johany Andrés's story

Johany is 35 years old and he is a fighter. Every day he works from 3:00 AM in the morning until the late hours of the night. He works preparing and selling mazamorra, a traditional drink of the region that has as its main ingredients cooked corn and milk, and it generally accompanies a sweet such as arequipe (pudding made with milk, sugar, baking soda, and cinnamon) or bocadillo (dessert made with guava paste). His products are very well known in the area for quality and exquisite flavor and for Johany the most important thing is to satisfy his customers and he always worries about making the best mazamorra that he can.

Johany’s dream is to see his business grow, so he would like to improve the infrastructure of the business and have working capital in order to buy supplies, but right now he doesn’t have the funds to do this. This is why he is asking for a loan, to make necessary repairs to the vehicle he uses to transport his mazamorra, to buy large containers of milk, and to buy a grinding machine, and he will use the additional money to buy supplies for the business, and thus his business will continue to push ahead, to improve sales, and his income will increase and his quality of life will markedly improve.
