A loan of $550 helped to purchase spare part for his corn grinding mill.


Santos Adolfo's story

Sr. Santos is 46 years old. He is engaged in hiring the service of grinding corn. He has a mill in his house. Every day he provides this service. Many people arrive where he grinds the corn so that they can make the delicious tortillas that are an accompaniment to the three daily meals in many households. He has a lot of customers, and he begins work every day at 3:00 a.m. because his is the only mill in the area.


Santos has the support of his wife and children, who do the household work. He will use the loan to purchase spare parts for the mill. He wants to maintain it and in this way provide better service to his customers.
