A loan of $500 helped to buy analgesics, vitamins, and antibiotics for his business.


Carlos Asmel's story

Carlos lives with his wife and parents-in-law. He is the father of a one-year-old son and sells medicine for a living. He started his business thanks to his father-in-law, who is a medicine salesman. They go out together as street vendors and do not have a fixed work-day schedule.

He is requesting a loan to buy medicines for his business, since he is in need of analgesics, vitamins, and antibiotics in tablet, syrup and injection presentations.

Carlos aims to have a well-stocked business so he can respond to demand and improve customer service.
