A loan of $825 helped to rebuild his sweets factory.

Andres Hungria's story

With 31,500 DOP Andrés will be able to rebuild his place of business, a “dulce de leche” [a sweet prepared with milk and carmalized sugar] factory, which burned down three months ago.

Andrés is currently making his sweets in an improvised shanty. However, he is not able to have the volume of production or the hygiene to which he has been accustomed.

Andrés is married, and his wife is a housewife. They have three adult children who no longer live with them.

Andrés’s dream is to once again have a large and comfortable place to produce his dulces de leche. Then he would be able to tend to the quantity of customers that are waiting for his product.

He does not sell directly to the public. He distributes his sweets to grocery stores and convenience stores. Due to the lack of space at this time, he is only able to supply half of his customers.
