A loan of $900 helped to buy vegetables.


José Josué's story

José is a 24 year old, single, young man. He lives in the Caserío Monte Mercedes, Sololá. He is a person with a lot of desire to get ahead.

He currently buys and sells vegetables (beans and carrots, among others). He conducts this business activity at the Sololá municipal market. This generates for him the income needed to cover his personal expenses like those of his family.

He very happily says that he has been engaged in this business activity for five years. In addition to generating income for him, it serves for him to be in contact with his community and with nature.

He needs more working capital to buy vegetables. That is why he is requesting a loan for 7,000 GTQ.

José’s most important dream is to remodel his house. This way he will have a better quality of life.
