A loan of $1,450 helped to purchase a deep-frier to make fried chicken.


Nicolas's story

Nicolas, according to his neighbors' references, is a tranquil and hardworking person. He has a primary-school education and couldn't pursue his studies because financial problems forced him to look for work. He has been separated from his ex-wife for more than 15 years, which led him to come to the city looking for better opportunities. Since then he has worked as a printer for a well-known publication. He currently is renting and does not own his home, but he hopes to be able to buy one in the not-too-distant future because he has the goal of forming a new family. He is requesting the loan to open a fast-food business, since he made a living in the business years ago. He tells us that his experience is such that with the loan he can purchase a deep-frier and make a good income putting it to use. This will help him gain a more dignified life and he can feel more satisfied with what he has achieved.
