A loan of $400 helped to buy more merchandise for his store and offer more products to his clients.


Rigoberto's story

Rigoberto is 42 years old, and lives with his life partner and their three children of 21, 15, and 8 years of age respectively. He has spent 7 years working in business in his store that sells basic products. He has always liked having his business, and having his own store came about when he was given a house on a hill and he saw the necessity of opening a store to obtain a stream of income for his family. It has been profitable.

Every 8 days Rigoberto has to travel to buy the products for his store, and he does so in the company of his wife. The trip is 40 minutes by bus to the city where he is able to make his purchases.

Rigoberto is asking for a loan to buy more merchandise for his store and offer more products to his clients. In order to always have what his clients are looking for and thereby generate more income for his family, he is hoping that he can provide his children with opportunities to study so they can be prepared academically and so that his business continues to grow even more.
