A loan of $850 helped to buy vegetables and produce to stock his business and offer his customers a good variety of products..


Samuel Humberto's story

Samuel has worked his whole life in the activity of selling produce and vegetables. For a long time he worked in the market plaza and in that way he generated the income his wife and 2 children needed in his home. Right now, Samuel has his own business which he has run for 10 years. He is raising 2 children, aged 15 and 18, because their mother abandoned them a while ago without making any financial contribution for their support. Thanks to his hard work in his business, his 2 children have been able to have a quality education. Now his oldest son can go to the university. He is seeking the financial resources to offer him that possibility, but his financial situation has been very difficult. Despite this, Samuel keeps working hard and this has allowed him to have very good sales. That is why he is now seeking a loan to buy produce and vegetables to stock his business and offer his customers a good variety of products.

Samuel hopes that his sales will keep growing so that his son will have the financial resources necessary to go to college and be able to graduate with a career. His biggest dream is for his business to allow him to get ahead and he yearns to have his own home to offer a more stable home to his children.
