A loan of $1,575 helped to purchase rice, sugar, oil, colas, milk, cheese, and other groceries.

Luis Geovanny's story

Luis is 57 years old. He has been married to Ercilia for 20 years and they have one son who is 17 years old. Ercilia is a housewife, and in her free time she helps with the business. He opened his store initially because there was no shop in the area to buy groceries. For this reason, and the great customer service he provides, the business does well. He works from 7am to 9pm. His greatest challenge is the winter season, due to the floods which damage merchandise, and delinquency. With this loan he will purchase more products such as rice, sugar, oil, colas, milk, cheese, groceries, water, etc. His dream for the future is to purchase a truck that he can use to expand his business.
