A loan of $425 helped to buy a new trolley and a range of snacks.

Manuel Francisco's story

Manuel is married and has two adult children. He worked in a well known business until 10 years ago when, due to his age and problems to find employment, he decided to work independently. He got a trolley to distribute coffee and a variety of snacks as a street vendor in order to earn a living.

Manuel dreams of extending his business and improving his income. For this reason, with this loan he will buy a new trolley, as the one he has is extremely run down, and a range of snacks to offer to his customers, who all know him where he sets his trolley every day. This will bring him and his family greater financial stability and will improve his quality of life.
