The Restaurateur

At first, Emmanuel Dor didn’t think he needed loans. He had money and a business – why would he need to borrow more? But he realized that a loan from Accion partner Sogesol could ultimately help increase his profits. “With a loan, I was able to become a landowner,” Emmanuel says; he also purchased a car that helps his restaurant make deliveries, and uses the profits to send his children to school.

Since then, his restaurant has secured two big contracts to provide breakfasts and lunches. “My kids see the change,” he says.
