Francisco's story

Francisco is 33 years old, married, and has two children. His wife takes care of the household duties. Francisco is a determined individual who works very hard so that his household lacks nothing. His family is very close and works hard. Francisco started working when a cousin taught him this trade. He later decided to start his own business. Francisco began by purchasing milk for producing cheese. His business grew a little bit at a time with the milk separator he acquired when he started six years ago. Francisco works from 6am to 5pm.

The loan he is requesting will be used to buy milk for making cheese. This loan will change Francisco's life in a major way since he does not have enough money to buy the necessary supplies for making his product. As a result, he will have more cheese to offer to his customers. The problem he has had to face was being the victim of a robbery in which he lost a great deal of money, which affected his business. Francisco was left without any working capital to invest in cheese production. One of his goals is to grow his business so that he can move his family forward.

This is his fourth loan with FAMA and his previous loans were repaid on time.
