A loan of $1,075 helped to buy a freezer, improve his sales stand, and to buy stock wholesale.

Ángel Humberto's story

Angel, 51 years old, is married and the father of two children. He worked as an excavator in a mine for most of his working life. However, due to the high risk associated with mining, he decided to retire from this profession and dedicate more time to his children.

Because of difficult economic circumstances facing his family, Angel decided to start his own business. He obtained a sales stand in a very busy part of the area where he lives. However, he needs the help of a loan to invest in the purchase of a freezer, to do renovations to his place of business (by painting his stand), and to buy stock wholesale (snacks, cookies, pastries, soft drinks, milk products). This will allow him to earn enough income to continue to provide for the basic needs of his household. Furthermore, he will be in charge of his own time, so that he can devote it to his family.

Angel is a hardworking and determined man who is dedicated to his family. For this reason, he wants to fulfill his dream and finish making the payments required to earn his pension, which will guarantee the wellbeing of his family and provide them with a better quality of life.
