Noel Ernesto's story

Noel Ernesto is 49 years old. He lives in his home with his wife. He has two children and only one of them is dependent upon him. His economic activity is a general store. He has been working in this business for more than 15 years. He started selling basic products, such as rice, sugar, oil and beans. His business was needed to offer a necessary alternative income to his family. Noel's main business is to satisfy the needs of his customers offering them whatever they require. This is why he applies to Fundación León 2000 and through it its sister organizations for the support he needs, and he asks for a loan for working capital to purchase basic grains, candy, soft drinks, soda pops, costume jewellery and bags of milk. Noel's wish is to turn his store into a wholesaling business.
