A loan of $875 helped to buy supplies such as chips, oil, bananas, snacks and candies; and also to buy paint to make improvements to his food cart.

Héctor Fabio's story

Hector, 36, lives with his wife and four children, who they have raised with care and dedication.

For eight years, he has been working as an independent trader. He has got a food stall where he sells fried food and a food cart from which he sells a variety of snacks and candies. It is located outside a school and his wife helps him at work from Monday to Saturday from the early hours of the morning.
He is asking for a loan to invest in supplies and stock (chips, oil, bananas, snacks, candies) and to make improvements to his food cart (paint). This will help him improve the image of his business and attract more customers. He will also be able to offer a wider range of products to satisfy the demand. As a result, he will generate more income for his family.

His greatest desire is to have his own place where he can set up a fast-food restaurant. In doing this he can move away from street selling and the different problems and risks that this type of work has. His own place would be a significant step towards improving the standard of living of his children and his wife, who he loves a lot.
