A loan of $300 helped to purchase paint, sandpaper and wood.


Juan Antonio's story

Juan Antonio is 30 years of age and resides with his wife and two small children. He is a very hardworking man who has always dreamed of providing a better future for his family. He is well known among his neighbors for being devoted to his work since he is the only one generating income for his household and taking on the responsibility of providing for its daily sustenance. Some time ago he began earning a living as a fisherman using traditional methods. Every morning he wakes up enthusiastically and goes out on a boat to harvest the fruit of a lake near to his place of residence.

He finds he needs to request a loan from Apoyo Integral for purchasing materials to repair his boat since it is worn with use and he would like to make improvements. He wishes to buy paint, sandpaper and wood. He appreciates the good-hearted people who will be helping him soon and expects to pay off the debt as soon as possible.
