Maximo's story

38-year-old Maximo lives with his wife, has three children who depend on him, and lives his mother-in-law's house. For five years he has made a living selling bread on his motorcycle. He visits local stores and businesses to offer his goods. He sells from Monday to Sunday.

Maximo is a hardworking man and gets up very early every day, working as a break salesman and later as a day worker in the afternoon in his own business. He is an example of perseverance and work, and is admired by others.

Maximo needs this loan to open a new business selling slices of plantain in his house, since he already has family involved in this business. He is very happy to work with Prisma.

Maximo's dream is to have his own house and a new business.
