A loan of $950 helped buy a truck for his business of buying and selling junk.


Estevan's story

With a loan of 36,750 pesos, Estevan will be able to have enough money to buy a truck for his business of buying and selling junk. Estevan began his business over 15 years ago and it is the only source of income for his family and himself. Estevan is divorced and has two children of 13 and 12 years of age, both children are in school and in the afternoons enjoy playing baseball. Estevan’s native city, San Pedro, has borne many Major League players including Sammy Sosa which is why the dream of every father and child in San Pedro is to be ‘signed’ by a major league team of the United States. “I want to buy a truck to be able to buy junk in places, that because of distance I’m not able to go, since I want to finish building my home and to help support my children with their education and financially.”
