A loan of $550 helped to buy supplies to make detergents.

Jorge Alberto's story

43 year old Jorge is a humble man and he has had to fight to generate enough livelihood to survive. Because he has little education, working in the informal sector has been his only option to generate income. He has worked offering repair services for umbrellas and electrical goods and selling detergents. He does this work everyday, traveling the streets of his area in search of new clients.
His greatest dream is to strengthen his business selling detergents and work full-time on this activity and so he is requesting a loan to buy supplies for making them.
His greatest difficulty is walking long hours under the sun, which has given him continuous headaches. For this reason, he wants to get a stall. But, he knows that this is a medium-range goal.
His family is his greatest motivation and the reason why he is looking to improve his economic condition and quality of life.
