Lider
Lider has a small pharmacy in his home. With 20 years of experience running this kind of business, his entire family is dedicated to this line of work, and he has worked with them and in other pharmaceutical businesses. 5 years ago he placed his business in his home so that his wife could work there, and he worked there on his days off. One year ago he left his other job and dedicated himself to his pharmacy. Their location is well placed where there is no competition and the service they offer is good because of his experience. They are open every day of the week, from 7:00 am until 10:00 pm.

He needs this loan in order to place orders for pharmaceuticals and take advantage of discounts, and to stock a display case with items related to babies and toddlers, for example diapers, bibs, milk, and gifts for children, since in that area there are many children.

Lider is 55 years old, with 3 children already in school. He is married, and his wife supports him in the business, especially when he isn't there. They are a very hardworking family. With mutual effort they have been able to buy their house and bit by bit they are remodeling it from cane to concrete block. They hope to grow in this business as it is the only source of income for the household.
