A loan of $400 helped to buy coconuts and a freezer.


Juan's story

Juan has a life partner who he lives with. For 10 years he has earned a living selling coconuts and ice, working from 9am to 4pm. With so much experience he is able to keep his business going and his products are also easy to sell because of the climate in the area where he lives.

Juan will use the loan to buy coconuts and a freezer to increase his sales of ice, which he hopes will improve his sales, increase his profits and pay off his loan. He dreams of having his own stall to serve his customers better and of continuing to meet his household expenses.
