Samuel's story

Samuel M., 47, lives in the La Libertad department. He lives with his 48 year old wife, Ana. She is a merchant. Samuel has a store in his house. He sells daily basic needs products that are consumed daily. He sells retail and also for wholesale. Samuel is asking for a loan because selling wholesale requires a greater quantity of products. He wants to stock his store with cooking oil, cereal, and other things. Samuel has had previous loans, which have been paid back. He qualifies as a responsible client in all of his payments.
