A loan of $2,550 helped to purchase machines (a grating machine, a packing and sealing machine, and a small refrigerator), as well as materials (implements for packaging, plastic resealable bags, etc.).


Julián Andrés's story

Julián is 22 years old, is single, and has no children. Due to a lack of job opportunities, it has been difficult for him to find employment after having quit his job at a milk and cheese factory because they were exploiting their employees. For this reason, and with the need to move forward and support his family financially, he decided to open his own business, a micro-business for selling and distributing milk products, taking advantage of the four years of experience that he has in the field. He will begin with selling cheeses. Julián already began with a downpayment for his business via some savings that he had collected, but he needs the support of a loan in order to invest in the purchase of machines (a grating machine, a packing and sealing machine, and a small refrigerator), as well as materials (implements for packaging, plastic resealable bags). With this he will be able to begin the work of his business and will be able to generate income to support his parents, as well as advance and prosper his business, to purchase fresh cheese in bulk, and to have his own brand for distribution. In this way he will be able to improve his quality of life and provide a better living for his parents.
