A loan of $850 helped to buy mangoes.


Álvaro's story

Alvaro, 47, worked for most of his life on a farm as a foreman until the owners sold the farm and left him without work. After that, he saw the need to find another source of income to support his family. He sold a cow that he had, and bought a cart to sell mangoes. Now he sets up his business at the entrance of some schools so that he can sell his products and generate an income that will allow him to provide his family with a decent life. His main dream is to be able to have his own house so that he could improve his quality of life. He is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of raw materials to increase his sales and take advantage of the fact that students are returning to classes.
