A loan of $500 helped to buy merchandise and stock his business.


Joaquín's story

Joaquín is 37 years old and lives in San Miguel with his two children, 8 and 16, who are students. Joaquín has worked selling candy, toys and soft drinks from a pick-up truck for four years. He works from 5am to 7pm from Monday to Saturday.


He is currently requesting a loan to buy merchandise and stock his business. With this investment, he hopes to have a large inventory, to go out to sell the products, and to have better sales possibilities. His main goal is to grow, but he also wants to work with his own resources and continue to increase his potential, thereby stabilizing his income.
