A loan of $425 helped to buy basic grains, meat, chicken and other items in order to increase his sales and his variety of meals.


Gustavo Antonio's story

Gustavo works as a chef. Thanks to his experience he has managed to keep his clients, always with the help of his wife in food sales, a business that he has in his own home. He put the table in the corridor, giving it a picnic ambience. His children are married.

Well, for him it has been a great challenge. When he began he did it with his own money from severance pay. Later with earnings and loans he increased his sales a bit more, offering a better variety of meals through a loan he received through Afodenic, and he has paid attention to agreements, providing his family with more opportunities.

With this new loan he will invest in 100 pounds of rice, beans, sugar, a can of oil, Coca-Cola products, meat, chicken, fish, vegetables, fruit and a 100 pound gas tank. Striking a good balance, increasing sales by preparing more food.
