A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase fruit, flavors and other items to support his ice cream business.

José Fabián's story

José is 38 years old and single, and he lives with and takes care of his mother, who is 68 years old. José makes a living during the week as a agricultural worker, and on the weekends he runs an ice cream business. When the weather is warm and nice, his ice cream business thrives. When the weather is cooler, business is average, but his clientele is always satisfied with the variety of products José sells.

With the support from this loan, José plans to purchase cups, fruit, flavors, cones and other products to support his ice cream business. His goal is to strengthen his business, expand his customer base and offer a greater variety of delicious products to his clients. Eventually, José hopes to purchase a physical space and open an official ice cream shop.
