A loan of $1,000 helped notebooks, stationary.

Francisco Antonio's story

Francisco is 52 years old and owns a stationary store. He lives with his wife and two children in Fortín de Guayaquil (a semi-urban zone, with dirt roads and hills).

He started the stationary store business 15 years ago to increase his family income. Since that time, the stationary store has been a very good source of income. To tolerate the economic crisis, he works from 7:00am until 8:00pm every day. For sale in his shop are paper, notebooks, pens, shampoo, etc.

He wants to stock up on more items for his shop. As such, with the loan he wants to buy notebooks, pens, and stationary goods. In the future he wants to grow his business and re-stock it.
