A loan of $650 helped to buy firewood at wholesale.

Francisco Adan's story

Demand for Francisco’s firewood has increased so he’s decided to request working capital to meet customer demand. He’ll buy firewood at wholesale so his business will have the capacity to remain active. With the help he got previously, sales and customers increased and so did his income.

His immediate family continues unchanged. They are better off economically for their needs are met for the most part. He strives daily to expand business and take on new customers.
