Juan's story

Juan, 68, has been married to Julia, 63, for 47 years. They have seven children together. With plenty of sacrifice, they raised their children and gave them everything they needed for a decent life.

Juan has had a small grocery and vegetable stand in a market since 1997. He started with a small amount of capital which he saved thanks to a good agricultural season. He also works in agriculture and makes deliveries to businesses in other neighborhoods while his wife takes care of the market stand.

He has applied for a loan to buy fruit and vegetables, corn, rice, beans, and oil. He will then be able to stock his business and give his clients a greater variety and quality of products.
