A loan of $1,500 helped to buy gold, silver and gem stones.

Omar Antonio's story

Omar is from Granada. He’s married and has three daughters who are 12, 7 and 3 years old. He’s a merchant. He works making jewelry, an activity he started when he stopped working with his father in the same activity at the age of 26; he decided to become independent and looked for a way to earn income for his home. This has been his first business. He does not have help from anyone else; he runs his business by himself. He sells his items at home since he has customers that come by to purchase from him. He also has other income that’s generated by his wife who has a new clothes store in the market. His future plan is to expand into Costa Rica because it’s a good market.

He’s asking for the loan to buy merchandise like gold, silver and gem stones. He feels that this loan will help him because it will allow him to increase sales as well as income. His next goal is to be able to expand into other countries and to continue working to meet his future goals.
