A loan of $700 helped to buy sprockets, pedals, and seats for his bicycle repair business.


Jose Lucas's story

José wants to stock his business, and to do this he is applying for a loan to buy what he needs to repair bicycles, such as sprockets, pedals, and seats. He is also getting ready to plant sorghum, and for this he will buy fertilizer, which will allow him to improve his work.

He states that with the last loan he succeeded in making the necessary investment. So far things have remained stable, and with his family as well. The income has served to cover the household expenses. He wants to construct a business location for his workshop.
