A loan of $1,000 helped rice, oil, and sugar.


Manuel Rosendo's story

Manuel, age 50, has a small store in the front part of his house. He lives in a periurban area called Perimetral. He started his grocery store seven years ago because his sector needed a grocery store. Also, he needed to generate income for his family. Little by little he sold oil, rice, and drinks in his little place. Then he was able to stock it with more food. He now works from 6:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. everyday. He wants to use the loan to stock his business more. He will use the loan to buy rice, oil, and sugar. In the future he wants to have a well stocked store and to be able to make some home improvements.
