A loan of $800 helped to buy tables, chairs, tablecloths, and cooking utensils.


Mario Roberto's story

Sr. Mario is 48 years old, lives with his partner, and has three children. He runs a food business selling candy, breakfasts, and lunches. His business is well-located as it is in an area where lots of people who live in the nearby mountains pass through. They like his food as it’s very tasty and the prices are affordable.

Mario will use the loan money to buy tables, chairs, tablecloths, and cooking utensils so that he will be able to provide a better service to his customers. They will feel more comfortable when they come to eat the food he makes. Mario needs to earn more money so that he and his family can get ahead. He has an assistant to help him prepare the food and serve the customers.
