A loan of $425 helped to buy different kinds of bread.

Ernesto's story

Ernesto, 42, is married and has a 10-year-old daughter attending public school. His wife works for a public library. He sells bread from place to place every day going house to house rain or shine to sell his products. Even as an auto mechanics graduate he’s found it hard to get employment in auto repair shops because of his age and this has been his greatest difficulty in life: not having steady employment.

This is the first loan he’s requested to buy different kinds of bread like cheese, coconut and sweet bread, among others. His great dream is to have a place to bake bread in and to sell it there as well.
