A loan of $575 helped to buy fruits and vegetables.


Francisco Luis's story

Francisco is 48 years old, lives in the town of Bello, Antioquia, Colombia, and has a fruit and vegetable store.

This is his only source of income for his family; his wife and their nine-year old child. Every day, he gets up very early and starts work. He goes to the market square where he buys the fruits and vegetables that he sells in his neighborhood, and then opens his store and works until eight in the evening.

His biggest dream is to adapt his business and move it to his neighborhood's market in order to make more profit, enabling him to improve living conditions in his home.

That is why he is requesting a loan to buy more stock and expand his product portfolio.
