A loan of $725 helped vehicle repairs for taco sales.


Justo's story

Mr. Justo C. has had his taco selling business for 7 years. He runs the business with his wife, Mrs. Antonia Zarate. They are asking for a loan to be able to fix and air condition a truck. They want to sell tacos in different parts of Nuevo Laredo (city). They plan to pay for the loan with the earnings from their new taco stand, which his wife will run. He will be seeing to the other stand. The person in the photo is Antonia. Justo was stocking up on goods for taco sales.
