A loan of $225 helped to buy a stove to make pizzas to sell.


Hans Buchanan's story

Hans Buchanan, age 44, has been married for eight years, and he has an eight year old daughter. He lives in the village of Choloma, Cortes.

Hans has a business selling homemade pizza. He has been preparing the pizzas at home, together with his wife, for two years. He devotes nine hours a day to this business. He sells in an itinerant manner, and he delivers to homes by contracts or orders. He delivers on a bicycle. The pizza sells well in the area because it can be eaten at any time.

He has requested this loan to buy an oven. The oven will serve to increase production and meet the demand that he has.

His dream is to have a fixed place where he sells pizza.
