A loan of $1,000 helped purchase 5 quintals of chia (a medicinal plant).

Jairo's story

Jairo is a native of the city of Estelí. He is married and the father of two children. He is 35 years old. As a business man, he works selling medicinal plants. He began in this business as a helper for a family member who sold grain and medicinal plants. Little by little, he started his own business, which has done very well for him.

He is seeking a loan to purchase 5 quintals of chia (a medicinal plant). He believes that the loan will be very helpful because it will allow him to offer more, high quality products to his customers. His plan for the future is to obtain his own vehicle to use to sell his products.
