A loan helped to buy bulk quantities of food and other grocery products so he can offer a wider range of goods.

Jose Jorge's story

22-year-old Jose lives with his partner in the town of Tierralta. He is considered at high risk of not being able to repay loans because the town where he now lives suffered a high level of armed violence in the past.
His ambition is to expand his grocery shop where he sells goods such as milk, grains, vegetables, dairy produce, etc.
At the moment, he does not have much stock and this is causing him problems as he cannot supply the things his customers ask him for.
Because of this, Jose decided to apply for a loan to help him become more organised and enable him to buy bulk qualtities of food and other grocery products so he can offer a wider range of goods and serve his customers better. This would also enable him to boost his income so he can cover the basic requirements which all businesses need to cover.
