A loan of $1,000 helped to buy corn, vegetables, tomatoes, leaves, etc.


Juan Dolores's story

Juan, 46, lives with his family in his own house. He and his wife have worked making tamales for several years. He has a large clientele because of his kindness at work. He’s very well-known where he lives and his work produces enough for him to cover some of his household expenses.

Juan’s asking for a loan to invest in the tamale business buying corn, vegetables, tomatoes and leaves which as shown in the photo are used to wrap, etc. and to continue in business and have better quality of life with his family.
