Alirio Alberto's story

Alirio has had to overcome many adversities in his life, but without a doubt, he has always had enough strength to move on and continue making progress alongside his family. After looking in different regions of his country for opportunities to work, he arrived in the municipality where he currently resides, and there he was able to open a general store where he sells everyday goods.

Thanks to this business, he makes enough income to support his family, and therefore he always looks after the store in the best possible manner so that his business will continue to grow and have more customers. Because he started his business with very little capital, he doesn't have enough variety in the products he offers to his customers, and for this reason, he is seeking a loan that will allow him to buy everyday goods to offer his customers a greater variety of products and thus be able to have higher sales.

His dream is to turn his business into a corner grocery store where where he will be able to offer employment to others and also be able to offer his family economic stability and a better quality of life.
