A loan of $850 helped to buy oranges and seasonal fruits.


Felix Matias's story

68-year-old Felix bought a tricycle cart and began selling fruit about thirty years ago. Now he also makes juice to sell, and thanks to God it has gone very well.

He does his job alone, going up and down the streets Monday through Sunday from 9 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon. One difficulty he faces is the delay in payment when he sells his fruit on credit, and another is his age. He got separated a while back, and all his children are grown.

He has many aspirations, and because of this he wants to increase his capital by buying fruit with the loan.

His goal is to be able to keep himself active as long as God is willing.
