A loan of $1,000 helped toys, notebooks and pens.

Italo Gabriel's story

Italo is 42 years old and has a small school/office supplies store based from his home and sells morocho dessert. He lives in an urban area called Guasmo characterized by the fact that most people are traders.

With some savings he started to buy office supplies for his business. He adjusted his house at the front and set up his product. Slowly through the years he has stocked it. He sells morochos dessert because his dad used to sell them and showed him how to make them so that this activity stays alive in the family. With the loan he wants to buy toys, notebooks, pens for his supplies store.

In the future he wants his store to be one of the biggest ones and to continue with the morocho dessert sales.
