A loan of $925 helped to buy clothing, small electric appliances.

Andres's story

35-year old Sr. Andres is married to Georgina Larrea and has three young children. He buys and sells small appliances, as well as sport shoes, thermos flasks, clothing, bedding etc. He has been doing this since 2005.

Andres needs this loan to buy comforters, heaters, clothes driers etc. to complete the orders from his customers for the upcoming cold season.

Andres travels by motorbike to make his sales and collect payments. In the future he would like to buy a small truck for these tasks as it would provide greater safety and allow him to expand his customer base. He would then earn more money and provide a better life for his family.
