A loan of $775 helped to buy home products to sell.


Edgar Benito's story

Edgar, 46, is married and has three children who attend school near their home. He started his business nine years ago after he lost his job and began selling dairy products. Then he worked as a street vendor selling "chicharrones" (pork cracklings) three days a week. He also started selling ponchos, bedspreads and dish sets. He is requesting a loan to buy more merchandise such as home products, since the Christmas season is near and this is when demand increases. His dream is to finish paying for his house so his children will always have a place to live.
