A loan of $1,075 helped working capital.


Orlando Antonio's story

Orlando Antonio E. is married and has two children who attend a public secondary school because he doesn’t have sufficient income to keep them in a private school. His business is a small convenience store located in his home. Previously, he worked in different places in his district in order to offer his products on an itinerant basis. In this fashion he was able to gather many customers. Currently, he is very well–established in his in-home shop, although it wasn’t easy confronting all the difficulties that he had to go through.


Now, he is applying for financing that will be used for working capital for the purchase of basic grains, juices, bread, sweets, eggs, and soft drinks. Orlando dreams of increasing his business so that this will assure the future of his 2 children.
