A loan of $825 helped to buy a cart and fruits and vegetables.


Jhon Fredy's story

Jhon Fredy, age 39, has dedicated his whole life to the sale of fruits and vegetables on the street. He walks the streets of his neighbourhood and the surrounding sectors every day. Four years ago, he was able to obtain permission to sell his products. He works from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday to Saturday. He now wants to change his cart because it is in bad shape. He also wants to invest in the purchase of more stock in order to increase his income and improve his family's quality of life. In the near future he wants to have his business at a fixed location and generate a direct income for his family.
