A loan of $1,000 helped purchase bottled water, soft drinks, and juices for his shop.

Segundo Alberto's story

Segundo is 35 years old. He's a hardworking man who opened a small shop two years ago. He lives across from a school and there weren't any similar business in the area.

He and his wife work in the shop from 6:30 in the morning till 8 at night. They intend to use the loan to buy bottled water, soft drinks, and juices to satisfy their customers' needs. In the future, he'd like to build a cinder-block house and open a shop inside the school in order to improve his situation and provide for his family.
