A loan of $1,800 helped purchase a refrigerator so he can offer his customers fruit slurry.


Yamil Adolfo's story

Yamil is married, and to earn an income to support his family, he has a business selling fruit and vegetables. It is located in a good area of his municipality. Thanks to his business, he has been able to get his family ahead, and so he continues to work hard every day. His biggest obstacle in his business has been the lack of capital. It was a year ago that he started working on this business, and he had to work really long days to be able to forge ahead with his business. He needs to start selling fruit slurries, which are a product that require refrigeration. Yamil is seeking a loan to purchase a refrigerator that he can use to start offering his customers fruit slurry.

Yamil’s dream is to have children with his wife in the near future. He is hoping that his business can provide him a good income that he can use to offer a good quality of life to his children.
