A loan of $600 helped to buy sound equipment.


Jose Manuel's story

Jose is a young man who lives with his family. He is single and doesn’t receive any foreign assistance. He organizes social events with his batucada dance group and also has a small clothing sales business; his main advantage is that he doesn’t have any competition in the area.

He will use the money to buy sound equipment so he can provide better customer service and become more popular. He expects to increase his number of customers and improve his financial situation to support his family expenses.

He dreams of having a home of his own becoming completely independent.
