A loan of $200 helped to buy hammocks to sell.


Teodoro's story

Don Teodoro is 45 years old and has been selling hammocks for several years. He sells his products near his home as a street vendor from 8:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M., as shown in the photograph. Afterwards, he works at a bakery.


With the profits he generates from his sales and the pay he receives from the bakery, Teodoro has been able to help his family get ahead. He lives with his wife, who is a merchant, and their child. Don Teodoro is requesting a loan so that he can buy more merchandise to sell since he does not have enough to make a new investment. As a result, he will generate more income and be able to continue providing for the household expenses.
