A loan of $550 helped to buy vegetables.


Camilo De Jesús's story

Camilo is 53 years old. He is a humble countryman from the area of Ceja Antioquia, Columbia. He supports his family through working in agriculture. 4 years ago, he decided to settle in an urban zone of his area. He decided to open a vegetable shop there to make more income.

Every week he buys food from his country friends' harvests and sells it in the market square. He comments that one of his main challenges is competition. Therefore, he tries to be innovative in providing good customer service and good prices. He is currently requesting a loan which he will invest in stock with the aim of improving his household's quality of life.
