A loan of $1,500 helped to buy merchandise to stock his store and to make improvements to his home..


David Antonio's story

David is 65 years old, married, and has five children. For 12 years he has made a living by selling sorbets, an activity that he learned from a friend. Before he was a day laborer, but his income was not sufficient for the support of his family. For that reason, he decided on the traveling sorbet business on a bicycle to schools, soccer games, other events, and on the streets of the community.

Every eight days the merchandise is dropped off at his house. He maintains it in a freezer, and later he takes out small quantities for going out to sell it on his bicycle.

The loan will be invested in the purchase of merchandise to stock his business and to make improvements to his home, where he lives with his wife and five children. By increasing his stock of merchandise, he will be able to receive better income, with the objective of providing security and comfort for his family.

What he wants is to buy a tricycle-style motorcycle, due to the fact that his age causes him to tire while pedaling on the bicycle.
