A loan of $500 helped to buy basic grains like corn, beans and coffee.


Jose Rigoberto's story

José lives with his wife and four children. He’s married and a basic grains merchant. He’s been in this business four years now and works Monday through Saturday. Sometimes he works as a street vendor selling in throughout the cantons in his car.

He’s asking for a loan to buy basic grains like corn, beans and coffee, among others. This investment will help him increase inventory and obtain better profits.

Jose’s dream is to have a better quality of life and to offer his children better schooling opportunities all the way up to graduation from university.
