A loan of $300 helped to buy fruits and vegetables to sell.

Jose Mauricio's story

José is a very responsible father who devotes himself completely to his two minor children. The children go to school and are completely dependent upon him because José is a single father. He therefore needs to work and devote himself to his household and his children at the same time.

José works selling fruits and vegetables in his pick-up. He sells in an itinerant manner in different areas of the department in which he lives. Because he has been working this way for several years, he has various fixed customers who wait for him every week to buy the food they need for their families.

José is requesting a loan to be able to buy a greater quantity of vegetables like green chilies, tomatoes, and onions. The demand for these vegetables increases during the Christmas holiday season. With the loan he will take full advantage of his work and improve his income.
