A loan of $1,000 helped to buy bananas at wholesale.


Samuel's story

Samuel, 32, is single and has a one-year-old son. He sells bananas at wholesale in his sales stand located in one of the city of Santa Cruz’s busiest markets. This loan will be his first sequence in the institution and Samuel will use it to buy bananas by the load; he will buy an entire truckload and then sell them at wholesale to the very merchants in the market. The business challenge Samuel faces is being more competitive in the marketplace and he will use profits to improve his family’s quality of life.
