A loan of $1,600 helped to buy a motorcycle.


Juan Pablo's story

Juan, 20, is a man with big dreams and projects to complete. He decided to set up his own business so he could generate income to support his mother. He opened a locale to sell grilled chicken and beverages, a business that has been well received in the community.

Now he dreams of offering delivery service so he can increase his sales and improve his service. This has motivated him to request a loan to buy a motorcycle, because he doesn't have his own resources.

His biggest dream is to begin his university education and give his mother a decent quality of life.
