A loan of $1,050 helped to purchase basic products for the store: sugar, rice, beans, oil, cornstarch.


Luis Alonso's story

Luis lives with his wife and two children. He has a store selling basic goods, ( rice, beans, sugar, corn, oil) he started it out of his own initiative 16 years ago. He works everyday and has no established hours since the business is out of his home, which is why he tends to customers at any hour.

The loan would be used to expand his store and purchase more merchandise such as: sugar, rice, beans, oil, cornstarch, and this way improve the business and increase his earnings.

Luis has a dream to increase sales and have more variety and to also fulfill his obligations and have his family living better.
