A loan of $575 helped to repair his mower, his main working tool.


Jose Nicolas's story

Jose does not have much money, but he does have a great desire to get ahead. For some time he has been providing the service of mowing the fields on the farms in his area. This business activity has generated the income needed to support his household. He lives with his wife and five children.

Jose has always been known for the good service and favorable prices he gives his customers. This has allowed him to excel in the presence of the growing competition. Jose now has a problem with his mower, which is his primary work tool.

It is broken, and he is therefore looking for a loan to repair his mower, his main working tool. Jose hopes that this way he will continue offering his service to his customers and continue generating income for his household. Also, Jose hopes that his family will be able to have a better quality of life and greater financial opportunities.
