A loan of $350 helped to buy candy and snacks.


José Horacio's story

José is 65 years old. He is extremely motivated to go out to work each day outside of the city high school in Rionegro, Colombia and sell snacks from his stand. The money that he earns from his sales allows him to help his family get through some financial difficulties they are facing. His biggest dream is to improve the quality of life in his home so that his family would never lack food or clothes to wear.

Now, José is requesting this loan in order to buy items to stock his stand with, so he can increase his sales and generate more profit.
