A loan helped to buy medicine to equip his pharmacy, increasing his sales.


Jaime Casiano's story

Jaime, 42, is a hardworking man. He lives in the town of Bella Unión, which is located in Arequipa.

From a young age he was always interested in the care and well-being of people, so he decided to study medicine. With a lot of effort he managed to open his pharmacy and, with that, help people in his town.

He's requesting the micro-loan to buy medicine to equip his pharmacy, increasing his sales.

Jaime wants to improve his house in the future so he can live comfortably. He's also going to work very hard to help more people who don't have the chance to get medicine.
