A loan of $1,375 helped to buy Cola, Gatorade and Deli soft drinks.

Napoleon Gabriel's story

Napoleón lives in Milagros with his parents. He is 23 years old, single, and sells Cola, Gatorade, Deli and Vivan soft drinks. He tells us that he really enjoys his work. As he was unable to find a job, he finds this to be an honest way to make a living. Napoleón works alone from 8.00am to 4.00pm, visiting his customers and delivering their orders. The reason his business is successful is that he reaches very distant places which other sellers don't normally reach. However, this also makes him afraid because there are thieves who hang around in these areas. Napoleón plans to use this loan to buy products to have in stock. This will allow him to take his first step in starting to work as a wholesaler.
