A loan of $425 helped to purchase firewood and a metal grid for his business.

Juan Manuel's story

Juan is 45 years old. He is married and lives with his wife and two children in his house. For 3 years he has worked in the business of selling milk, curd, and firewood. He also works as a bricklayer.
Juan sells firewood to tortilla sellers, restaurant owners and brick-works. He carries out his business in his car, three times per week. He works as a bricklayer the rest of the week.
Juan is asking for this loan in order to improve one of his three businesses by buying firewood and a metal grid to use in his car so he can pile more firewood in it. With the support from this loan, he hopes to improve his income and his quality of life.
Juan's wish is for his business to by one of the largest and most recognized in the area.
