A loan of $300 helped to buy stock merchandise for his store.


Mario's story

Don Mario, as he’s known by his neighbors in the city of Santaní, is single and has children who are still little and who are Mario’s reason to live.

He owns a small but well stocked store that’s the only one in the neighborhood. He tells us that all of his neighbors come by all the time to buy from him and thanks to this he does very well and has the necessary resources to support his family day to day. His goal is to stay in business to be able to give his children a good education so that they won’t have to suffer privations like he had to.

He requests the loan because he wants to stock the store with soft-drinks, dairy products, food items, cured meats, meat, greens, vegetables and others to continue stocking his customers.
