A loan of $350 helped working capital.

Juan De La Cruz's story

Juan de la Cruz B. C. is 39 years old. The economic activity in which he is engaged is the sale of general merchandise. He’s been in this business for more than 5 years. The beginnings of the business came about through his life companion. She gave him the idea in order that they could both work together and, so, they did it. That’s why now they both go through different streets carrying bags into which they’ve loaded their merchandise to show to their customers.

In spite of the fact that his work is very exhausting he hasn’t given up dreaming that some day he will have a means of transport that will make it easier to deliver his products. The purpose of the financing is for working capital for the purchase of bags, footwear, and clothing. His wish is to establish a shop in order to exhibit his products.
