A loan of $250 helped to buy coffee and firewood to sell.

Raúl Antonio's story

Raúl is 43 years old. He lives with his wife and one son, who is a student. He owns a grinder in his home which he rents so that people can grind different types of food such as sweetcorn, broad beans, vegetables, and other types of aliments, to make some kind of either dough or sauce. He also sells firewood and ground coffee to neighbours and people in the area. Raúl asks for a loan to buy one more grinder in order to serve more customers, and to buy more firewood wholesale for retail and more coffee to grind and sell. His greatest wish is to improve his business, since it is his only source of income with which to live with dignity and support his family.
