A loan of $1,275 helped to buy items to supply his store.


Amado's story

Amado is 65 years old and married to DelRosario. They have 3 children who are already grown and living on their own. He lives in a renowned area of the city of Itá, where he has had a well-stocked store for more than 30 years that his wife manages. There, they provide neighbors and friends with all types of articles of first necessity for the home such as meat, vegetables, milk, coal, beverages, canned goods and other products. Meanwhile, Amado carries out the planting of sugar cane on some hectares of land that he rents near his home.

Amado requests the loan to buy a variety of items for the store such as vegetables, milk, coal and beverages in order to augment his supply and generate higher sales and, ultimately, to earn more profits to continue to help his family.
