A loan of $900 helped to buy coconuts, sugar, and brown sugar.


Jorge's story

Sr. Jorge lives in Guayaquil. He is 39 years old and manages the family business that has been in operation generation after generation. From a young age, he has been selling coconut sweets and juices.


Jorge works alone and receives help from no one else. He currently sells coconut sweets and faces difficulty in his work due to illness, which prevents him from functioning normally. Jorge is single and has three children, but only one is attending school.


With this loan, he will buy supplies such as coconuts, sugar, and brown sugar for making coconut sweets. His dream for the future is to repair his house so that his children will have a place to study.
