Edwin's story

Meet Edwin!

With the initial support of his parents, Edwin set up a small convenience store in his community that sells food, snacks, cleaning supplies and home appliances. Edwin is known in the community for owning the store Kiosko la Bendicion ("God's blessing" in Spanish) and being very hardworking. Apart from helping his family, Edwin uses the profits of this store to cover his expenses to go to college. He has recently graduated from high school and is applying to study customs in the local university, as he is passionate about international trade.

Today, Edwin is applying for a loan to buy inventory for his store, to recover from the devastating economic effects of the pandemic and expand his small business. Thank you for supporting the recovery of small businesses in rural Panama!
