A loan of $1,650 helped purchase raw material and make improvements to his potato chip cart.


John Edilson's story

John Edilson is a great fighter who looks for how to earn his daily bread for him and his family. He is 39 and his daughter is 14. His dream is to offer her a good education. He never had the opportunity to study because of his difficult situation since he was a boy. “My love and the desire to see my daughter become a professional are what motivate me to go every day to the city center where I earn a living selling potato chips.” These are the words that John used to describe his daily motivation. Presently he needs to make adjustments to the potato cart and purchase raw materials to increase his sales. He is requesting a loan since he does not have enough resources by himself to make this investment in his business.
