Santos's story

Sr. Santos M. Pavos is 47 years old. He is a recent widower since his wife passed away about two months ago. He lives with a niece and her son.


Santos sells cola at wholesale. In addition, he is a retailer of phone cards and cases of bottled water. His daily sales have been doing well. He manages his business from home and has been in operation for two years.


He is requesting a loan because he needs to restock his supply of soft drinks and phone cards for the Christmas season. His sales are higher during this time.
