Juan Orlando's story

Juan Orlando loves life. He is 60 years old and he feels alive and useful. He says, “As long as I have my health, I will never be short of work.” Every day he gets up very early to go to his fruit stall, located near the main city park in Amaga, Colombia. Even though his life is very complicated, because aside from working to support his household, he cares for his wife who suffers from psychological disorders and must take her medications. For this reason his expenses have gone up and his fruit business has not produced enough income to cover his expenses. Motivated by these economic difficulties, he finds himself asking for a loan so he can buy pork and fruit that will allow him to offer more products and generate better income that will allow him to improve his family’s quality of life.
