A loan of $475 helped to buy a wood cart and vegetables.


Álvaro De Jesús's story

Álvaro, 54, has spent most of his life in the construction industry. Given the uncertainty of employment, he found it necessary to find another source of income to support his household. At his friend Alvaro's suggestion, he decided to use a vegetable cart to travel the streets of Itagüí every day, selling to customers from 9 am until 6 pm. His great wish is to improve his financial situation and offer his family a better life. To achieve this, he is applying for a loan to buy a wood cart to transport his vegetables and other items.
