A loan of $900 helped to buy wholesale banana pants.

Ignacio's story

Ignacio, 48, is married and lives with his wife and their two children in the town of Santo Tomas La Unión.

He is a hard-working man who wants to move his family forward. He says that he makes a living by buying and selling banana plants from the local market in his community. He has 23 years experience with this work, which his father taught him since he was a child.

He has now noticed that his business is fairly profitable. For this reason, he's decided to request a loan of 7,000 Q to buy banana plants wholesale to increase his income.

His biggest dream is to earn more income through his business so he can buy land where he can plant his banana trees.
