A loan of $550 helped to buy basic food products.

Samuel Enrique's story

Samuel, 59, and his wife are a vivid example of a truly united family. They remain together even under difficult circumstances. After losing his job, he had to take a lesser job so that he didn't starve and he could buy basic household necessities.

As he addressed the need to earn income, Samuel's wife suggested that he sell fried foods and blood sausage as a street vendor. She gets up early each day to make the items; later Samuel walks the city streets selling them. He has asked for a loan to buy supplies so that he can increase production and earn more, which will allow him to improve his family's quality of life.
