A loan of $300 helped to buy a variety of fruit and to repair the cart he uses to sell fruit as a street vendor.


Carlos Mario's story

Carlos has worked for the past 18 years in the fruit and vegetable selling business which he started thanks to his brother teaching him and giving him his initial stock to set up this business. With this activity he can now get his family ahead and offer a good quality of life to his wife and their two children. This is why he always works hard to improve his business every day. Looking to overcome the difficulty of the lack of lack his business has at the moment, Carlos is looking for a loan to buy a variety of fruit and to repair the cart he uses to sell fruit as a street vendor. His dream is to have a great business, employ two people to also sell fruit and in the future to set up a store where he can have great fruit and vegetable sales.
