A loan of $150 helped to buy a new shaved-ice cart.

Francisco Edgardo's story

Francisco makes a living selling "minutas" [shaved ice]. He lives with his wife and a child who's in kindergarten. They're the only dependents in his family. He started his business selling shaved ice two years ago to earn income.

He's requesting a loan to invest in buying a new "minuta" cart. This will help him improve his business by having a new point of sale and getting new income because he'll be managing two small carts.

His goals are to have a better income and better living conditions in his family, and to help with his son's education.
