A loan of $550 helped purchase merchandise at wholesale prices.


Yamid Alejandro's story

Yamid Alejandro is a 33-year old small businessman who dreams of providing his two children with a better life. He works every day selling shoes to his neighbors and other clients. He enjoys his work as a salesman, and he is good at his job. Currently, Yamid hopes to increase his sales and thus fulfill his family's needs. However, he doesn't have enough capital to make wholesale purchases of his merchandise. The loan will help his business progress and increase his earnings. His dream is to one day have a large store that is known for a variety of products and good customer service. This dream is what drives him to wake up in the morning and start building little by little towards fulfilling that dream.
