A loan helped to buy assorted items for resale.


Olimpio's story

Olimpio is 45 years old, married, and the father of six children all of whom are in different grades in school. He is a merchant.

This is Olimpio's third loan which he will use to buy a variety of hardware and household items such as cups, plates, brooms, bowls, nails, bicycle inner tubes, rims, glue, and other items for resale at his stand. He used the previous loans for the same business.

Olimpio's main dream is to see his business grow and become stable.
