Juan Gilberto

El Salvador
El Salvador / Fish Selling

A loan of $550 helped to purchase fertilizer and herbicides, fish and shrimp.


Juan Gilberto's story

Juan is requesting a new loan because he needs to invest in his business, since he is about to begin farming. He wants to sow basic grains, so he will invest part of the loan in fertilizer and herbicides. He will invest the rest in purchasing fish and shrimp to continue selling them. This loan will allow him to continue with his work and grow corn at the same time. Juan looks for any work where he can make money, even if it means changing businesses every so often.

The previous loan helped him gain trust with his customers and allowed him to attract new ones, including areas to where he had no acces. This has allowed him to grow and, at the same time, to provide his family with greater stability.
