A loan of $475 helped working capital.


Jose Luis's story

José Luis is married and has 2 children who are in a public school because he doesn't have enough money to send them to private school. His business is a small grocery store which is located in his home. He used to work in different places in his district offering his products in the streets. In this way, he managed to attract a lot of customers. He is currently very well established in his home premises although it wasn't easy to confront all the difficulties he has experienced. He is now requesting a loan to be used as working capital for the purchase of basic grains, juice, bread, candies, eggs and soda. His dream is to increase his business so that he can secure his children's future.
