A loan of $700 helped buy merchandise.

Javier's story

Javier lives with his wife who also sells articles for the home, and they have a small daughter. Javier sells goods at wholesale and retail. Normally he buys merchandise from wholesalers that come of other cities to our country, and the delivers according to the order he has. He also is learning the art of gold/silver smithing as his wife’s grandfather does this work and he wishes to be able to offer his products with his own design in the market in the future. The sale of the household goods generates good income but he has a disadvantage in that these types of goods arrive to him every 15 days and then he carries and distributes the merchandise. Javier is a responsible person and is grateful to the institution for providing him this opportunity to have a loan.
