A loan of $1,000 helps to buy staple goods and dairy products in order to have greater availability of inventory in his store.


Willy Nelson's story

Will lives with his parents, two siblings, and three nieces and nephews. He is single and has no children. He has no family living abroad.

Will's business is running a store where he sells staple goods and dairy products. He learned this trade when he was working in a similar business. Nine years ago he decided to start his own business.

He works from Monday to Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. An advantage his business has is that it is the only store in the area that sells staple goods. The biggest difficulty he has confronted is that he had to close his business completely for a few months when restrictions were put in place limiting people's movement and free trade due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Will is seeking a loan to accelerate the reactivation of his business. He will use the loaned funds to buy staple goods and dairy products. This will provide him a greater availability of inventory in his store. He hopes that the investment will help him increase his sales, which will give him better profit margins.

Will's goal is to have a bigger and more profitable business. This would provide a better quality of living for his family.
