A loan of $600 helps to buy oil, detergents, bread, eggs, coffee, sugar, chicken, and snacks for his store, among other staple goods.


Dario Pavel's story

Darío is a hardworking young man. With the aim of helping his mother and compensating her for her years of sacrifice in moving him and his siblings forward, Darío started a small store in a very well-traveled area with the small savings he had.

Over time, and with the support of the organization, he has managed to expand his business little by little. Darío wants to continue boosting his business. For that reason he seeks a loan to buy oil, detergents, bread, eggs, coffee, sugar, chicken, and snacks for his store, among other staple goods. In this way he hopes to improve his earnings in order to continue helping his mother.
