A loan of $1,000 helped to buy more quarry stones.


Argel Manuel's story

Argel, 31, is married and has two children. He was born in the city of Teustepe. Argel is a salesman; he buys and sells quarry stones. He started to work as a driver fourteen years ago. Little by little, he saved until he had enough money to buy his own truck, with which he became independent and started selling his own product.

His short-term goal is to continue buying and selling stones. He is requesting a loan to buy more quarry stones in order to have more to sell. He believes that this loan will help him to make better profits and expand his business. In the future, he plans to request a new loan to invest in buying land.
