A loan of $500 helped to buy frozen pops and treats.

Jose Amilcar's story

Jose is asking for a loan because he needs to buy more products to make progress in his business. He sells frozen treats and has an additional seller. He will use the funds to buy fruit pops, cappuccino sorbet and packaged sorbets. The loan will be of much use for his sales and to be able to obtain another freezer; he’s satisfied with the loan. He hopes profits will help him stay in business. He’s had to repair one of the bicycles and a freezer for the business which meant additional expenses so he hopes too that profits will provide enough to cover what’s necessary.
