A loan of $1,000 helped to buy potatoes wholesale.


Mario's story

Mario, 50, lives in Puerto Rico and sells potatoes in Torno. He buys potatoes wholesale from farmers in the area and in the city of Sucre and later resells them. He is separated from his wife. He has two adult children who live with him. He will use the loan to buy potatoes at wholesale as he already has orders to deliver because the demand is high these days, and he wants to take advantage of it. The previous loan cycle went well, and now he needs money to go to Sucre, where he buys a lot of potatoes. He is in his tenth loan cycle and has always been punctual with payments. He feels happy and very grateful for the financial help provided by the institution.
