Pablo's story

69-year-old Pablo is married and lives with his wife and grandson in his own home. For the past 20 years, he has been selling hammocks and hammock ropes as a traveling salesman. He buys his merchandise and then re-sells it in convenience stores and other places outside the city. Pablo also sells soft drinks, water and other products from his home with his wife's help.

Pablo is requesting a loan to buy bottled [soft] drinks, hammocks and hammock ropes. With the support of this loan, he plans to improve his business and his income. He is very happy to continue working with Prisma. This is his seventh loan request.

Pablo's dream is to make improvements to his home.
