A loan of $500 helped buy two carts.


Francis Remberto's story

Francis lives with his family which is made up of his wife and their two children. To cover his household expenses, he earns his living selling snacks and lemonade, a job he learned from his father. Francis has been doing this work by himself for ten years.

He is planning to use the loan money to buy two carts as well as ingredients for the snacks such as jello, lemons, ice etc. He hopes to improve customer service, increase production, and earn the extra income he needs to cover his commitments. Francis’s dreams are to expand his business, be able to repair his house, and provide his family with better food, education, and clothing.
