A loan of $1,100 helped to buy raw materials to make coconut juice.

Julio Vicente's story

Julio, 35, lives in Libertad. He used to be a bricklayer’s helper but when he realized that he needed to support his household with a business he started becoming independent and having his own soft-drink business. He works from Monday to Sunday from ten in the morning until 6 in the evening. His wife helps with the household chores and together they strive daily to move their family forward.

He wants to use the loan to buy coconut drinks to sell. His dream is to rent a locale in order to sell at wholesale and to have employees but to do so needs to buy more raw materials to make the drinks.
