A loan of $1,000 helped to buy perishable products of primary necessity.


José Francisco's story

José Francisco O. G., 27 years old, is a young, responsible, hard working man who works in his own business which is a store where he sells products of primary necessity. He lives with his father of 70 years who works as a tailor and his mother who takes care of the household activities.

José works every day of the week in the store which is located in the house where he lives in the town of Soyapango, benefiting from a location that is very good for sales since it is in front of a bus stop where every day a large number of people gather. For several years José has strived to increase his inventory, trying to supply his clients with everything necessary to meet their wishes and in this way increase his income.

José requests a loan through which he will be able to buy all types of perishable products which he does not now have, such as buying french bread which is also known as baguette bread since this type sells well in the mornings as well as the evenings. For this reason he wants to be able to buy it wholesale.
