A loan of $400 helped to improve his juice stand and to buy merchandise.


Javier Eskil's story

Sometimes difficulties turn into great opportunities. This is the case with Javier, age 44. Having lost his employment, he became determined to not sit around with his hands crossed. He devised a way to earn money to support his wife and children.

He established a stand selling natural soft drinks. He works at his business every day from nine in the morning until six at night. “This work is a blessing,” Javier states. Even though his earnings are not very high, they allow him to bring home the daily bread.

He is now requesting a loan to improve his juice stand and to buy merchandise. He greatest dream is to be able to improve his business in order for his financial situation to change.
