Dolores's story

Dolores is originally from the city of Teustepe. He is 56 years old, married and an exemplary father to seven now independent children. Dolores is a farmer and businessman, making a living growing beans, corn, and wheat, as well as selling condiments. Dolores started this business 25 years ago, selling condiments as a street vendor. This was very very successful. Dolores' next goal is to buy more condiments to take out and sell. He is applying for this loan in order to buy new products such as cinnamon, clove, achiote, cumin, and more. This was he can increase his sales and offer a greater variety of products. Dolores expects that this loan will be a great help because it will generate higher profits and he will increase his customer base. Dolores' future plan is to buy a truck to use in his work.
