A loan of $250 helped to buy firewood for his business.


Hipolito Gustavo's story

Hipólito is a 45-year old man who lives with his wife in the town of La Cuesta, where he sells firewood and corn. On weekends, he carves up pigs and sells them in the same community. Hipólito sells his products every day of the week in different places given that his clients are women who sell tortillas and need the products for their businesses.

Hipólito is requesting a loan to buy firewood and to sell in different localities, and is glad to count on this support. Hipólito's dream is to buy another car to carry his products.
