A loan of $675 helped buy children's clothing and shoes to increase sales.


Mario Enrique's story

Don Mario is 45 years old and the father of four children. A few years ago, he used his savings from a previous job to start his own business selling women's, men's, and children's clothing, underwear, and a variety of other products. It has not been easy since the demands are intense. In the market, there are many stores in a row, but they all do well. There are good times and bad times. With a financial investment, the store has stocked good products, which have generated good earnings. Each day, he invests more to achieve a balance between his sales and his expenses. The difficulty is that clothes that don't sell in months are sold at a discount. Therefore, he tries to invest in a lot of clothing to make more sales and not lose a lot of money.

With this loan, Mario will buy children's clothes and shoes to attract clients and meet his sales objective. Thanks to his strength, he has succeeded in supprting his children with their studies. He also brings them to work with him so that they can get experience with the store.
