A loan of $625 helped to expand his house to install a corn on the cob stand.


Antonio's story

Antonio was born in the city of Piedras Negras. He is a kind person. All of his neighbors know him and speak well of him. He worked for many years at a beverage company, but because of the low salary he earned, he decided to resign and start his own business. He works selling corn on the cob with only a bicycle. He has done this work for more than 20 years and it offered his family a better quality of life. Now his children are grown and have their own families and for personal reasons he separated from his wife, leaving her everything he achieved over the years.

Antonio started over by rebuilding his personal life and buying a house. The house was in total disrepair and with effort and dedication he has remodeled it. In the future, he wants to expand it so that he can install a shop to sell corn on the cob.

With the loan requested, Antonio will expand his home and achieve what he has in mind so that he can generate more jobs.
