A loan of $250 helped to buy coconuts wholesale and to repair the vehicle he uses for his sales.

Jose Ignacio's story

José makes a living selling coconuts. He lives with his wife and two grandchildren. He has been in this business for the past five years, and he works from 9am to 3pm. Little by little, he is making himself known to the customers, thereby strengthening his business. In this moment, he considers it necessary to give his family what they need.

He needs to invest his loan in the purchase of coconuts wholesale. He will also use a part of the loan to make repairs to the car he uses for selling. This will make his sales easier.

His aspiration is to have stable coconut sales; he also has a vision of adding and selling more coconut products.
