A loan of $1,125 helped to purchase an assortment of fruits to stock his business with fruit because supplies have been running low.


Jose Nelson's story

Jose has been selling fruit for four years. This business has generated the income he needs in his household to cover the expenses of his wife and his three children, who are 6, 10, and 13 years old. Before, he was selling fruit in the roadways, but three years ago, the government assigned him a space in the center of the city which has really helped him to increase his sales. Since then, his family has better income and a better quality of life, which has allowed his three children to have access to a higher-quality education. However, problems with capital still persist in his business, and that's why Jose is seeking a loan to buy an assortment of fruits to stock his stand with the fruits that he has been running out of.

Jose's dream is to carry on with his business and to eventually establish himself in a permanent shop. In addition, he aspires to improve his household financial situation so that his family can have a better quality of life.
