A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a motorcycle.

Francisco Jabier's story

Francisco is a simple merchant who resides in the city of Granada. He is married and is the father of 3 children. He works selling bags and plastics. He has worked in this business for 10 years. He began working with his spouse as a street vendor, offering his merchandise at grocery stores, food stands, and from house to house. Today he has a small shop where he sells his products.

Francisco needs financing to buy a motorcycle, which he will use to distribute his products in a faster manner. With the motorcycle, he will transport his merchandise and will save money by not having to pay for taxi fare daily to transport his products. He wants to be a major plastics distributor in his region so that he can employ other people, who, like Francisco, want to better their lives every day.
