A loan of $600 helped to buy seasonal items to stock the business.


Bernardo's story

Mr. Bernardo F. S. is an enterprising man who was retired from his job years ago due to health issues. He comments that the monthly income he receives is insufficient to cover household expenses. Because of this he started his own business selling used clothes five years ago where he’s done well economically to meet expenses.

This will be his 5th loan; he has demonstrated very good repayment habits. Because the business has been growing he needs to buy more seasonal merchandise.
