A loan of $575 helped to purchase a larger umbrella to protect him from the sun and a plastic cooler for ice.


Gustavo Alberto's story

Gustavo worked in construction for more than 30 years. This work generated the income he needed to meet his household expenses. Due to health problems, he decided to stop this work and found an opportunity to sell sugarcane juice. He started this work a year and a half ago, and although he does not have much money to get ahead, he has always made an effort to improve. Now, he has good sales and hopes that they will continue growing.

In order to have better working conditions, Gustavo is asking for a loan to purchase a larger umbrella to protect himself from the sun, and a plastic cooler to keep ice in. In this way, he hopes to have better working conditions and improve his quality of life considerably. He will be able to offer better products to his customers and increase his sales.
