A loan of $1,100 helped to buy plastic bottles and labels.


Juan Ferney's story

Twenty-five year old Ferney is a visionary. His big dream is to create his own business and to be known in his field.

Three years ago Ferney learned to produce bleachers and fragrances in a workshop run in his town and so he decided to produce and sell these products in the municipality. Thanks to strong demand, Ferney is applying for a loan to buy plastic bottles and labels, which will allow him to increase production and generate a higher income.

His dream is to grow and begin to sell his products in different municipalities in Antioquia.
