A loan of $1,500 helped to buy a truck.


Sabas Cristian's story

Sabas, 60, is a humble inhabitant of the San Gabriel region on the outskirts of Teustepe. He is married and the father of 4 children who are now independent. As a farmer, he makes a living by growing corn and beans, and also by ranching. He started 30 years ago in this area of trade helping other people take care of an estate, since he decided to save the money they paid him to undertake his own business of growing corn and selling livestock. This has been his first business. He feels satisfied with the daily earnings that this business generates.He relies on the help of his children.

His expectations are to increase his income; therefore, Sabas is requesting this loan to buy a truck. He estimates that this loan will help him to buy a truck, which will be used to transport his basic grains to regions to sell at a good price. Because of this, his future plans are to repay his loan and then apply for another one to buy another truck.
