Carlos Antonio's story

Carlos, 39, lives in San Miguel with his wife, Blanca Estela, and their daughter, Maria, 11. Carlos sells popsicles and sorbets. He transports himself in a microbus distributing goods to stores on the outskirts of the cities of San Miguel and Morazán.

He is asking for a loan to buy popsicles, sorbets, cookies and snacks. With this wholesale purchase he will get better prices from his suppliers which means a wider profit margin for his sales.

His goal is to improve profits to offer his family a more comfortable life and that his business lasts many years.
