A loan of $775 helped to buy pomegranates and firewood to sell.

Alejandro's story

Alejandro is from the Mejoranas Chipata community in Santa Apolonia, Chimaltenango. He buys and sells pomegranates and avocados. He also buys and sells charcoal and firewood. He has been doing this business activity for some years because it is his means to getting ahead.

He goes to buy his products in all of the communities that are close to where he lives. He later goes to the capital to sell them. He is well known by all of the people in the different communities he goes to daily.

Thanks to the help from his wife and children, he gets ahead with his business. He started with a small business, and thanks to God, he now has a business that is a little bit bigger.

His dream is to expand his business in order to have better income. This way he will improve his family’s quality of life. He is requesting this loan to buy pomegranates and firewood to sell.
