A loan of $550 helped to buy watermelon to sell.


Jose Celedonio's story

José Celedonio, 58, lives with his wife in Morropon, located two hours from the city of Piura on the north coast of Peru. The residents are farmers, merchants, and cattle ranchers. José has been selling watermelon in areas close to his district for four years. He has applied for a loan of 1500 nuevos to buy more watermelons than he usually does so that he can grow his business and earn more for his family.
